Aspen and Snowmass both opened today in time for the Thanksgiving break.  Aspen Mountain opened with a little under 200 acres of terrain open while Snowmass his hitting it out of the park with over 400 of acres open.  To make matters even better, both ski resorts are expecting snow this weekend, so there is a likelihood of more terrain opening up shortly. 

This of course is just in time for the FIS Alpine races this Saturday and Sunday.  Audi FIS is a womens alpine race and will feature some of the best ski racers in the world.
