In a throwback to 60’s prices, Aspen is stoked to honor its skiing heritage by opening its doors to the winter sports world at large. While the official events look decent, the real “revelries” will be taking place everywhere from Cloud Nine to downtown.

“Join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Snowmass Ski Area! We’re kicking off a season’s worth of festivities with a big, weekend-long bash, December 15-17, 2017.” – Aspen Snowmass
