From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 27-29, the Silver Queen Gondola will bring skiers to the summit, while the Ajax Express chairlift will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.—serving up intermediate runs on Aspen Mountain, along with some expert terrain on trails like Summit and Blondie’s. Lift tickets will go for $42, while sightseeing tickets are $21.

“With a pleasant spring squall dropping additional snow on the top of Aspen Mountain last week, we are excited to kick-off our summer season with skiing/riding,” says Rich Burkley, vice president of mountain operations for Aspen Skiing Company. “The weekend will offer classic conditions for a Colorado multi-sport weekend with town green and the mountain white.”
