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!
