First snow of season dusts Aspen's high peaks
The countdown to ski season has begun.
It won't be long before chairlifts start cranking up across the state: Arapahoe Basin, Loveland and Keystone are the perennial front-runners to kick off the state's snow-sliding season.
Aspen Mountain and Snowmass Ski Area aren't set to open until Nov. 22, followed by Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk, which don't open until Dec. 8 and Dec. 15, respectively — about the time when there are traditionally enough visitors in town and snow on the slopes for the Aspen Skiing Company to justify operating four mountains.
Now that there is a thin white coat covering parts of the Maroon Bells and the area's other high peaks, the anticipation to the ski season is building fast. The Aspen Skiing Company's ace photographer, Jeremy Swanson, captured the image to the right of the first snowfall in the area that he and his colleagues began pushing out on social media Wednesday.
Tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 14, is the last day to receive the "super early discount" on season passes for Aspen's four mountains. For a complete pricing structure and details on the various pass options, check out the SkiCo's website.
