Three to six inches of new snow hit Aspen Snowmass last night as snowmaking operations have begun across Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Snowmass. Set to open on Nov. 27, Aspen Mountain and Snowmass are expecting more snowfall the rest of the week. Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk are scheduled to open Dec. 13.
“In the past week we’ve had solid snowmaking production on three of the four hills. This week’s forecast looks favorable for both cold temperatures and natural snowfall and we hope to have several days of round the clock snowmaking” states Rich Burkley, Vice President of Mountain Operations for Aspen Skiing Company.
