Aspen Mountain to reopen for skiing this weekend!
Colorado's reality-defying weather has worked to a benefit this time around. The surge of late-spring snowfall around the state has allowed Aspen Mountain to reopen for the Memorial Day weekend, May 24 tthrough May 26.
Jeremy Swanson Aspen's season is not over yet.
Thanks to the recent display of manic climate instability, Aspen Mountain is still boasting a 53" base and will open 21 runs this weekend. The 2013-14 season pass for Premier Pass holders and 6-and-under pass holders will still be honored; all other pass holders can pay a discounted rate of $18. Day tickets for skiers and riders 13 and older will go for $36, while a kid's ticket costs $24. The ticket kiosk on Gondola Plaza will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Skiers and riders can take the Silver Queen Gondola to and from the summit from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the Ajax Express Lift from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Four-Mountain Sports will also be renting equipment for 50 percent off all three days starting at 8:30 a.m.
