Happy Thanksgiving. Yaaaaay, the ski season is under way in Aspen. As always, the lifts in Aspen started spinning on Thanksgiving Day. There are plenty of things to be thankful for in Aspen, but awesome ski conditions is not one of them. Aspen Mountain & Snowmass had very limited terrain open for skiing and riding. Kudos go out to the snow-makers and groomers who got one run open on Aspen Mountain. It was an "old school" opening day requiring a ride on the little used Little Nell & Bell Mountain lifts to get to the ski able terrain. Spar Gulch to Little Nell were the only runs open on Ajax.
Luckily Aspen Spin got out there early, before the crowds and got some super-tasty man-made corduroy. Spar to the Bar was the run of choice for many.
This weekend should be fun packed with the Women's World Cup racers in town. Music, events and parties are on the docket...we'll try to keep up. We're are breaking out the SNOW DANCE every night, lets hope we get dumped on soon. In the meantime...
