Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 15, 2010 4:04 pm

Aspen/Snowmass will extend the season at Aspen Mountain on the weekends of April 17-18 and 24-25! Consistent snowfall and cold temperatures have given the resort excellent coverage and the deepest base depths so far this season.

The Silver Queen Gondola, Ajax Express and F.I.S. lifts will be running from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. accessing as much terrain as conditions permit. Patrol will monitor conditions throughout the day and may close certain terrain as needed. The Sundeck will fire up the grill and host a band each day and additional activities are being planned.

All Aspen/Snowmass season passes are valid as they are during the regular season. Flex Passes are valid for one day each weekend. Additional days for Flex, Classic and Escape Passholders are $19.

Adult lift tickets will be $39 per day, youth and seniors will pay $29 and children’s tickets will be $19. As always children six and under ski/ride for free.

Current season passholders from any other Colorado resort will pay just $29 for their lift ticket.
