Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 16, 2011 12:20 am

In case you missed it, Aspen Snowmass is rolling out the red carpet this winter season. Just added to the line-up, New Orleans rock n’ roll band, Cowboy Mouth, will play the first free Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert of the season on Saturday, November 26 at 6:30 p.m. Known for the popular songs “Jenny Says,” “How Do You Tell Someone?” and “Love of My Life,” Cowboy Mouth will bring their high-energy and infectious sounds to the base of Aspen Mountain.


This is the first concert in a series of five free Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series that will take place during key weekends throughout the season. Past Hi-Fi performers include Big Boi, Ghostland Observatory, Donovan Frankenreiter, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and many more. Additional acts will be announced throughout the season and are booked in partnership with Belly Up Aspen. For more information about this concert visit

Most importantly, a Bud Light Beer Garden will offer $3 beer specials and the Ajax Tavern will also have a $3 draft beer special and $15 burger and beer happy hour special throughout the night!

They couldn’t do it alone and as a result Aspen/Snowmass would like to thank the Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series sponsors: Bud Light, Sprint, Audi, Helly Hansen, Skullcandy, Coke, Green Mtn Coffee, Frias Properties, Alchemey, Belly Up Aspen and Town of Snowmass Village. Not to be missed, the concert will be followed by the Giant Slalom awards and a fireworks show over Aspen Mountain.

While Snowmass is opening early on November 19, Aspen Mountain will open as scheduled on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 24. A few days later the world’s fastest women skiers will race down Aspen Mountain for the Nature Valley Aspen Winternational Audi FIS Alpine World Cup, November 26-27.

Spectators near and far are invited to the base of Lift 1A on Aspen Mountain to enjoy prime viewing of the finish line from the grandstands. Live television coverage by NBC and Versus will capture the excitement that embodies World Cup racing. The event is free and open to the public.

Last but certainly not least now is the time to save big on a trip to Aspen/Snowmass.
