Happy Passover and Happy Easter Week! I hope you’re enjoying springtime! It was a beautiful spring day in Aspen after a dusting of new snow in the high country last night. Don’t miss closing day and bacon day at Buttermilk Mountain this Sunday. Aspen Highlands and Snowmass close next weekend and Aspen Mountain will remain open until Sunday, April 19. Be sure to check out Schnetag next weekend at Highlands and the K-9 Uphill at Buttermilk. I was proud to compete in last weekend’s Elk Mountain Grand Traverse, a 38-mile backcountry ski mountaineering race from Crested Butte to Aspen. What a beautiful walk home under the stars. I finished in ten hours and four minutes, a personal record!

Spring Jam and March Real Estate Madness

Posted on March 24, 2015 by Chris Klug

We awoke to six inches of new snow on the mountains this morning in Aspen Snowmass. I had a blast at the 2nd Annual Aspen Snowmass Banked Slalom Race which took place last Saturday at Buttermilk. It was such a fun event and a perfect spring day, nice to see so many friends from the local shredding community. I was happy to get the win. I am looking forward to competing in this weekend’s  Elk Mountain Grand Traverse Race, a 38-mile backcountry ski mountaineering race from Crested Butte to Aspen. I’m hoping to be back in Gondola Plaza before 10:30 am Saturday morning. I hope to see you there! Get out and enjoy Aspen’s Spring Jam Events again this weekend! Check out the free Bud-Light Hi-Fi concert on Friday, March 27th featuring Iration at Snowmass Base Village.
