Aspen Snowmass to Open Early

We are thrilled to hear the good news that Snowmass mountain will open early this year on November 19, 2011.  Snowmass will feature 160 acres of open terrain including the Big Burn and two terrain parks.  The lifts will be open from 9am-3:30pm.  For those with season passes, the Aspen Skiing Company recommends picking up your pass in advance of opening day to avoid lines.
