A 50th anniversary is a major milestone for a company to reach so a firm often wants to celebrate the occasion with its customers. Aspen Snowmass is reaching its golden anniversary in 2017 and celebrating with a weekend-long celebration, but it’s the first day of the celebration that skiers will likely look forward to.
Dec. 15, 2017 is the anniversary of opening day at Snowmass mountain, and the celebration will bring throwback prices to the resort’s visitors, who will be able to get a one-day lift pass for just $6.50! This was the price that was charged on opening day 50 years earlier, a significant savings considering single-day lift tickets can otherwise cost upwards of $100! The catch is that the discounted tickets are only valid for that one day, Dec. 15, 2017, and only at Snowmass, not its affiliated mountains. The day will be capped off with a retro party at Elk Camp and fireworks over Fanny Hill.
Other weekend festivities taking place as part of the celebration include a 50th Anniversary Golden Gala at the Viceroy on Saturday, which is scheduled to feature the premiere of a film detailing the 50 years of Snowmass. Sunday features a day of vintage skiing and riding with a special Cabin Jump and Rail Jam, in addition to an on-mountain community picnic at the Spider Sabich Picnic and Race Area.
It’ll be three days of fun for all fans of Snowmass, kicking off with the heavily discounted lift tickets on Friday. For people looking to spend the weekend at Snowmass, the mountain has plenty of lodging options, whether you’re looking for a hotel room, a condominium or a vacation rental.
Even though this three-day celebration is gearing up to be the highlight of the season at Snowmass, it’s just three days out of about five months of skiing and events at the mountain. The 2017-18 season is set to open on Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 and run through Sunday, April 15, 2018.
