A new video will air every week until Nov. 12 for six episodes total. This week’s story profiles Aspen Mountain’s snowcats, the pros who drive them, and what drives them to create Aspen’s corduroyed runs overnight.
According to Aspen/Snowmass, here what’s coming up…
October 15, Coal Mine Methane Project: Aspen/Snowmass generates as much energy as it uses during an entire year of operation from an unlikely partner, a coal mine in Somerset, Colo. Aspen/Snowmass has invested in technology that captures waste methane from the mine and converts it into clean energy that goes back into the electrical grid.
October 22, Instructor, Guide, Local, Friend: Aspen/Snowmass Ski & Snowboard School pros are equal parts instructor, mountain guide, local insider and – most importantly – part of the family.
October 29, Champagne Bar: Yes, that’s a snowcat towing a mobile champagne-and-caviar bar across the slopes. Sit back, relax and let Aspen/Snowmass show you how to properly après in a beautiful setting.
November 5, Ullr Nights: Head up to the top of the Elk Camp Gondola in Snowmass on any given Friday night during ski season and experience a bona fide winter wonderland.
November 12, Burnt Mountain: Colorado’s second largest ski area, Snowmass, added 230 acres of in-bounds terrain with a backcountry feel last year. Get a feel for Burnt Mountain in this last installment.
