Après-ski season is officially open with drink specials and football all weekend long at Chair 9 in the Little Nell from 3–9 p.m.

A belated Happy Thanksgiving from Aspen Sojourner! We hope your bellies and hearts are equally as full and your celebrations continue through the weekend. Our latest #AspenWeekendAgenda has plenty of excuses to get you out of the house from football parties every afternoon at The Little Nell's Chair 9 to live music at Marble Distilling Co., The Black Nugget, Red Onion, Belly Up, and Justice Snow's. You can also get out and onto the mountain at Snowmass, the first of our four resorts to open for the 2016-2017 season. Official word from Aspen Skiing Company says Ajax will be ready by Monday so until then, take a sightseeing spin on the Silver Queen ($32) and keep the snow dances coming.
