Aspen Snowmass ready for powdery and eventful spring

Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 24, 2011 12:15 pm

Skiing or snowboarding at Aspen/Snowmass right now is filled with sunny days and powdery snow.  Winter snowfall has been very kind this year and the transition to spring is filled with events and deals.  The Colorado Freeride Championships are this weekend, Mardi Gras is getting close and the huge 11th annual Bud Light Spring Jam rocks out in March.

Colorado Freeride Championships – February 25-27, 2011

The Colorado Freeride Championships is a big mountain competition featuring some of the world’s best men and women skiers and snowboarders. Some of the biggest names in the industry  come out to play on the cliff-littered terrain of Snowmass, creating an amazing show for spectators. The expert-only terrain requires cutting-edge skills from the over 100 participating athletes who continue to push the boundaries of their sport. The Colorado Freeride Championship is an IFSA sanctioned event.  Spectators can watch the qualifying day of action from the base of the Hanging Valley Headwall and catch the finals on the Burnside Cliffs from  the deck of Gwyn’s High Alpine.                                                                                                                                                  photo: Jeremy Swanson
