Aspen Mountain continues powder tours despite resort closure

Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 26, 2011 2:34 pm

Skiers and snowboarders not yet ready to hang up their winter gear in Colorado can breathe a sigh of relief.  With nine fresh inches of snow falling today in Aspen/Snowmass and more predicted throughout the week, Aspen Mountain Powder Tours has decided to continue operations indefinitely due to the excellent snow conditions.

Aspen Mountain Powder Tours includes a full day of cat skiing on either the backside and/or frontside of Aspen Mountain complete with lunch.  Wide open bowls, plenty of vertical, sunny days and excellent snow make this Tour a must if you still have the need to shred some fresh powder.  With pricing starting at $200 per person and  up to $289 based on how many people are in each group, it’s a no brainer.  A minimum of six per group is requested.

Powder Tours will offer tours as conditions warrant. The following phone number will have a recording of current conditions and a weather forecast. Guests can leave a message or send an email with any interest and expect a phone call back between 3 – 5 p.m. each afternoon.  Powder Tours can be contacted at (970) 920-0720 or

Tours will meet the snowcat at the bottom of Aspen Mountain at 8:30 a.m. on the morning of the tour and will be dropped back off at 3:30 p.m.
