NEWS FROM ASPEN SKIING COMPANY FOR WINTER 2013/2014
Aspen/Snowmass, Colo., Winter, 2013 – Aspen Skiing Company (ASC) has invested $66.5 million in on-mountain capital improvements in the past six years, including: Burnt Mountain with 230 new acres of terrain on Snowmass added in 2013; three new restaurants including Elk Camp in Snowmass, which opened last season; four high-speed chair lifts, the Treehouse - a new children’s center; and significant improvements to the terrain parks on both Snowmass and Buttermilk. With so many major improvements, now is the time for guests to renew their Aspen experience.
Aspen Skiing Company runs four gondola and lift-accessed mountains in close proximity, two hotels, a private residence club and numerous restaurant and retail locations set between the town of Aspen and Snowmass Village. The location and elevation of Aspen/Snowmass combine to create ideal conditions as more than 300 inches of snow and more than 300 days of sunshine each year contribute to Colorado’s trademark light, fluffy, consistent powder snow.
With breathtaking 360-degree views of the Maroon Bells and an abundance of expert terrain as well as groomed cruisers, it’s no wonder Aspen Highlands has been the locals’ favorite for over 50 years. Hike the 12,392 feet to the summit of Highland Bowl for the ultimate in-bounds backcountry rush. *NEW* Glades: For the 2013-2014 season, Highlands' lovers will have even more to love with the opening of new gladed terrain. The Lucky Find Glades and Mystery Gully will offer two new lines of skiing in a formerly closed area. Moving forward, this area will continue to open up to around 20 acres of new, untouched terrain.
Other recent terrain expansion includes the new terrain on Burnt Mountain in Snowmass with an additional 230 acres, bringing the total skiable acreage to 3,362 acres and making Snowmass the second largest ski area in Colorado. The terrain on Burnt Mountain features rolling, low-angle meadows, glades and spectacular views into the valleys between Snowmass and Buttermilk. “This is a powder skiers dream,” said Steve Sewell, Snowmass mountain manager. “Burnt Mountain is a series of rolling meadows that will offer skiers and riders a super fun experience in this area that was formerly backcountry. Now it will be patrolled and controlled, opening up this amazing experience to more of the skiing and riding public.”
Total skiable acreage for Aspen/Snowmass is now 5,533 acres all available on one lift ticket and all tightly grouped around the communities of Aspen and Snowmass.
Also new to Snowmass, Aspen Skiing Company opened a mid-mountain restaurant, Elk Camp, located adjacent to the top of the Elk Camp Gondola at Snowmass. The $13 million dollar restaurant with seating for up to 300 guests, includes winter, summer and evening event space. On Friday nights during the ski season, Elk Camp transforms into a nighttime winter wonderland. The wildly popular Ullr Nights include old-fashioned, fun winter outdoor activities, such as the: Ullr’s Ghost Ship made of snow with lights and a slide, the Viking sledding hill, s’mores, hot chocolate and the Ullr dance by the bonfire, snowbiking, snowshoe tours, ice skating on Rayburn’s pond, live music, a la carte culinary celebration and full bar, indoor kids activities and entertainment. These special evenings run from 5:30-9:30 PM; Gondola tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children.
