We had such a great time last weekend we've decided to open Aspen Mountain for skiing and riding on June 4-5! The mountain opens with a 54 inch base depth and with the same terrain offered last weekend, 25 runs and 136 acres of mostly intermediate terrain, served by the Ajax Express chairlift. In addition, the mountain may be open on future weekends as conditions allow. Aspen Powder Tours will also be open offering powder and corn skiing tours on the back of Aspen Mountain.

Skiing and riding will be from the 11,212-foot summit with uploading and downloading on the Silver Queen Gondola from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily with the last ride down at 4:30 p.m. Skiing and riding will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Ajax Express chairlift. The Sundeck restaurant and Ajax Tavern will be open for dining and beverages.
“We haven’t had summer conditions this good since 2008,” quipped Rich Burkley, vice president mountain operations. “We figure that if we open for skiing maybe it will quit snowing. We encourage everyone to go up and make a few turns then jump on your bike, hit the trails or swing the golf club. It’s certainly a unique opportunity to enjoy everything the valley has to offer.”
Count the bare spots. Yep, none.
This video is from last weekend, but you get the idea. There's still a TON of snow.
Ski & Snowboard Rental
Four-Mountain Sports (520 east Durant) will be open for $25 ski/snowboard rentals from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. They will have huge savings on remaining 2010-2011 winter products. In addition, enjoy the mixed seasons by renting skis and a bike on the same day for just $50*.
