This is the last and final weekend to ski Aspen Highlands, so get on up here. April 26-27 are the last two operating days at Aspen/Snowmass for the 2007-2008 season. Skiing at Highlands has been a ton of fun with plenty of spring snow, sunshine, live music, a park, a pond skim and maybe a Corona or two.
Lodging in Aspen/Snowmass starts at low as $38 per night* through the end of April and tickets are discounted as well.
All Aspen/Snowmass season passes are valid as they are during the regular season. Adult tickets will be $39 per day, youth and seniors will pay $35 and childrenâ€™s tickets will be $25. As always children six and under ski for free.
As a show of support for resort employees across the country, employees from any other ski resort with a current season picture pass will pay just $12 for a lift ticket.
There will be plenty of entertainment with live music, lunch and a beer garden at the Merry-Go-Round restaurant from noon â€“ 3 p.m. every day during the extension. A pond skim is right next to the Merry-Go-Round too.
A park has been built under the Exhibition lift and will be open both days this weekend. The park features a full rail section and a jump line with four intermediate hits.
With more than 450 inches of snow falling on Aspen/Snowmass this season, the conditions are the best they have been in many years. The base at the top of Highlands is 130 inches, while the mid mountain base is 90 inches.
This weekend coincides with Frontier Airlines inaugural flights into Aspen. Frontier will launch the new Denver to Aspen service with five flights daily, year round beginning April 26, 2008. Airfare from Denver starts at $93.
