Judging by the photos, it looked like the folks at Aspen/Snowmass had themselves a pretty good time during the he final weekend of the Spring Jam. Packed with concerts, Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls, Fallen Friends costume themed event and plenty of powder, I think it’s safe to say you wish you could have been there. A foot and a half of powder has fallen in Aspen/Snowmass since Friday night so even if you weren’t at the events, the skiing was fantastic!
PEPPER kicked off all the action on Friday night as the snow started to fall. A lively crowd rocked along to the island jams of PEPPER as they played under the lights at the base of Aspen Mountain.
