After getting 33 inches over the last seven days, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk (home of the ESPN Winter X Games) opened Saturday, Dec. 12. All four mountains Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk are now all open for the season.
Monarch Mountain, Colorado, closed with a bang this weekend (sniff) in mid-winter conditions with its annual “Cook-off in the Lot” tailgate party. We were there to partake in the fresh snow, food and libations. Here are a few shots from the day.
