Sunday funday? It's a way of life in Aspen. As the ski season winds to a close, AspenSpin is still out there skiing every day and partying every night. You have to get up and out pretty early to beat A. Party. 8 am on Sunday morning to be exact. We had a BIG A$$ day planned...so best to start early.

Sun Dog Athletics and Erik Skarvan hosted their 20th annual K-9 Uphill for dogs and their masters. About 100 dog lovers hiked (or ran)up and down Buttermilk Mountain with their 4 legged friends. A portion of the proceeds from this "fun run" go to the Aspen Animal Shelter. As always the K-9 Uphill was a fantastic event.
After the dog show, A.Spin cruised over to Aspen Highlands for the 2015 Closing Day Spectacular. A little rip...then we concentrated on the extra curriculars. The closing day party at Aspen Highlands has become a "must attend" event in the ski world. It's become perhaps the best on mountain celebration in skiing (and riding). From the top of the Highland Bowl to thebottom of the underground parking garage, Aspen Highlands was chock full of partiers. Revelers of all ages, ethnicities and species showed up. As always, the closing day festivities turned into a full-on rave scene. The signature feature...the Highlands bounce...got going around 3 pm. When the music is right and the crowd is popping...the industrial strengthth plastic decking bends to the sound of the beat. The AH Bounce...effectively a crowd sourced moving dance floor is too good to pass up. The Highlands closing day party attracts hedonists from far and wide. Ski bums, hippies, business dudes, nurses, school teachers and more show up to collectively celebrate the end of ski season. Whether you're donning your vintage onezie or showing off lots of skin...the Highlands scene is second to none. Once again crazinessensued.
So we have one more week to ski Aspen Mountain. And the then it's over. No extended season this year. There have been more 50 degree days than POW days this season in Aspen. But we still had it better than most.
What are we doing for mud season? Funny you should ask...Aspen Spin's very own A. Party...founder, editor and chief provocateur is running for political office in Aspen. That kid will do anything for viral content. Anyway...enjoy the pix...and the last week of shredding. Spandex season is upon us.
