Aspen Snowmass to Celebrate Buttermilk Opening Day with Klaus Obermeyer
December 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Aspen Snowmass will celebrate Buttermilk Opening day at Bumps at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7 with a ceremony to honor Klaus Obermeyer.
Guests are encouraged to wear their retro Obermeyer ski outfits, enjoy complimentary apple strudel and celebrate another great opening day at Buttermilk. The celebration will also include a special presentation from Aspen Snowmass CEO, Mike Kaplan.
“We are thrilled to celebrate another season at Buttermilk, and excited to honor Klaus Obermeyer,” says Mike Kaplan, CEO of Aspen Snowmass. “Klaus has served as an incredible inspiration to our company and community for years.”
Klaus founded Obermeyer upon his arrival in Aspen, Colo. in 1947. He was also teaching skiing at the time and noticed that the cold is what kept people from wanting to ski, so he crafted his first ever parka from a down blanket, and began fashioning warm and stylish winter wear for his students and, eventually, skiers across the globe. Obermeyer is still headquartered in Aspen today.
