Aspen Snowmass Opening Day 2019
It's our favorite time of year! The City of Aspen is buzzing with excitement for the 2019/2020 ski and snowboard season, beginning in just a few weeks. Opening Day is quite an event here in Aspen, and we are lucky to get this rush twice with 2 sets of opening days at 4 mountains! This year Aspen Mountain and Snowmass Ski Area will open 5 days earlier than scheduled on November 23, 2019. On December 7, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk follow suit.
Aspen’s events are a wonderful way to spend the holidays. Tear it up on Opening Day at Aspen Mountain, then settle in and celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends. Continue to enjoy good vibes and the excitement of the mountains opening with early season events like Thanksjibbing, Summit for Life, and the 2019 Audi Ajax Cup! Or get in the holiday spirit at the 12 Days of Aspen.
What's New at Aspen Snowmass
As winter approaches, Aspen Snowmass has been hard at work with a new restaurant, new events and expanded offerings at all four mountains. In Snowmass, Sam’s, a new Italian restaurant will debut this November as a sit-down lunch spot located at 10,620ft at the top of Sam’s Knob. The $2.5 million remodel features an open bar area, live-action kitchen, cozy fireplace and a stylish deck. And the new Snowmass Base Village development continues to expand with the opening of The Collective, a new community center featuring additional dining and retail options.
