Book It: Aspen Ski Season 2014-15 Ends with a BANG.

Cheeks, Hess and the Buckaroo's lead the charge for the 44th annual Bell Mountian Buck-off.Very few people in Aspen were prepared for the 18 inches of fresh POW POW we received for closing weekend at Aspen Mountain. Even an experienced ski bum like A. Party had already packed away his warmest clothes and fattest skis.

But here in Aspen where almost anything is possible, Mother Nature and Ullr conspired to give us one last shot of Winter.  I for one...dug it the most.

Aspen's skiers and riders were packing up their family trucksters to head out towards the beach or the desert or the river or the City.  But now they'll have one final weekend of face shots and partying debauchery to remember all Summer.

Taco Bell Mountain with Jim Smith and Peter King.It was a weird Winter in Aspen...no one can dispute that, not even climate change deniers.  The freeze/thaw cycle played out several times during the course of the Winter.  No will look back fondly on the 6 week snow drought we experienced after Christmas. Or the 60+ degree days in March (although some of those were sweet).   The final ski day day of 2014-15 encapsulated the entire season.  Closing day on Aspen Mountain was cold, windy, snowy, foggy...whoa whoa whoa...then it cleared up to be warm, sunny and a sick bluebird.  Heads were spinnng. All the traditional events took place on Ajax. The 1 pm Buck-off on the Ridge of Bell in its 44th year... was special.  Taco Bell Mountain at the base of lift 5 was tasty...thanks Peter King and Jim Smith.  Aspen 82 jammed at the Buckhorn Cabin.  Family, friends, frenemies and way too many snowboarders from Snowmass were out on the mountain. In fact the entire Roaring Fork Valley was out skiiing.  Of course the required end of the season bash at Sky Hotel was off the hook...again.

It was a decent season.  A.Party booked 107 ski days in 2014-15.  Not bad for a fat old Jew from Detroit.  What does the future hold?  Only Aspen's voters can decide that. We'll see you next Fall...or next month if I get elected.
