Dreaming of the Color White
It's hard to think about interior design and sitting indoors when it's snowing outside as hard as it has been this week in Aspen. We just dream about powder days! Last weekend, Aspen Mountain opened for early season turns on Saturday and Sunday. Skiers and snowboarders took the Silver Queen Gondola up to 11,212 feet where more than 100 acres of terrain opened for business. On Saturday, a few surges in crowds gave guests something they aren't used to: lines. But, as people spread out it was sunny cruising for all. (Sunday people may have stayed in for the Broncos game.)
Since then, another foot of snow has fallen on local mountains and both Aspen and Snowmass open for the season this Saturday, Nov. 21. With all the new snow, officials haven't released just how much terrain will be ready this weekend, but it looks like mid-winter out there and that means enough for everyone. In recent years, we've been mountain biking and hiking right up until Thanksgiving, when the resort traditionally opens. This fresh snow is refreshing!
