Aspen Mountain and Snowmass to open Saturday, five days ahead of schedule
Two resorts will have combined 135 acres available this weekend.
Aspen Skiing Co. will kick off the ski season early for the second year in a row by opening Aspen Mountain and Snowmass on Saturday — five days before the scheduled opening on Thanksgiving Day.
According to The Aspen Times, Skico announced it will open 75 acres of terrain on Aspen Mountain and 60 acres at Snowmass. The tops of both ski areas will be unavailable for skiing and riding until more snow falls. Snow is forecast for the Aspen-area starting Wednesday.
“If we get a big dump, we’re going to open more terrain at the top,” said Katie Ertl, Skico senior vice president, mountain operations. By big dump, she clarified, she is thinking six inches or more.
