Aspen Skiing Co.: ‘We’re done’
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN, Colorado – Don’t count on any more lift-served skiing at Aspen and Snowmass this season despite mid-winter snow conditions.
“We’re done,” Aspen Skiing Co. spokesman Jeff Hanle said Monday when asked if extended skiing is a possibility.
This season was already one of the longest on record, with 151 days from the Thanksgiving Day start at Aspen Mountain and Snowmass to Sunday’s season-ending bash at Aspen Highlands.
In past years when snow conditions were phenomenal, the Skico opened on weekends after the end of the scheduled season, or it opened for novelty skiing on Memorial Day weekend. Skico officials aren’t thinking in those terms after such a long season, Hanle said Monday.
