Highlands set to open after snow gods smile on Aspen
The mountain had been slated to open last weekend but didn't due to a lack of snow.
But after 15 inches fell in the Aspen area — where Aspen Mountain and Snowmass have been open since Thanksgiving — and with more snow in the forecast this week, the Aspen Skiing Co. gained confidence that the time is right to fire up the lifts at Aspen Highlands.
The Exhibition, Loge Peak, Cloud 9 and Deep Temerity Lifts will begin turning. All of the blue terrain off the upper lifts will open: Broadway, Hayden, Meadows, Kandahar, Wine Ridge, Heatherbdlam, Floradora , Grand Prix, Pyramid and Upper Robinsons. All of the mid-mountain greens and blue terrain will open: Prospector, Riverside Dr., Exhibition (the run), Red Onion, Nugget, Golden Barrel, Park Avenue and Jerome Bowl.
Both Merry Go Round and Cloud 9 (the restaurant) open for the season.
"We will very likely have some terrain in the Bowl and Temerity open. As with all gated terrain, it opens when its ready and we'll know for sure Friday morning," SkiCo said in a press release.
Buttermilk will open as scheduled on Saturday.
