Aspen Mountain Reopens for Skiing

In this spring of endless winter, there’s only one thing to do: go skiing! With all of the snow we’ve received this week, conditions should be primo. Aspen Mountain serves up 130 acres of terrain at the top, accessible from the gondola and the Ajax Express lift; all skiers will have to download on the gondola. The Sundeck will be serving up food and drinks, and a DJ plays outside on Saturday and Sunday. Four Mountain Sports will also offer rental gear. Lift tickets $54, $27 for Flex, Double Flex, Classic, Club Escape, School, AVSC, Ikon, and Mountain Collective passholders, gondola sightseeing tickets $13–$32,
