What’s better than skiing Aspen Mountain? More skiing at Aspen Mountai
n. The Board of Pitkin County Commissioners agreed on Wednesday, November 17 to the proposed plan put forth by Aspen Skiing Company to open 22% more skiable terrain on the upper, eastern aspects of Aspen Mountain. The area, called Pandora’s, was already within ASC’s US Forest Service Special Use Permit boundary, and the project planning and execution includes a whole systems approachtaking into account environmental health, community impact, and skiers experience.

The area, which has been skied for years by a small number of people, will now be accessed via a high-speed quad and will include 1,220 vertical feet of groomed trails and glades ranging from intermediate to advanced terrain (plus an extension of favorite expert runs such as Walsh’s, Kristi, Hyrup’s).
