The Centennial State is open for business this winter whilst celebrating two birthday events – Happy 75st to Aspen, and Brit favourite Brecekenridge (discovered by GSG) is now 60! and both still going strong despite pandemics and lockdowns.
Aspen highlights how innovation in ski racing, sustainability, athletic achievement, inclusion and art have led to future possibilities in each of these areas. All four mountains should open by 11 December for fun pre-Christmas skiing and riding.
Breckenridge celebrates its 60th anniversary with a host of special events and capital improvements. The Opening Day celebration will kick off on 28 November, with festivities at the base of the Centennial Lift. A new chair lift at Peak 7, which will provide additional access to the popular mountain.
Bluebird Backcountry launches new terrain – This newbie, new avalanche-managed backcountry resort will this winter offer 12 new runs, four new skin tracks and new backcountry touring terrain. The new runs are designed for abilities from intermediate to advanced, opening up new areas of Bear Mountain for skiers to explore.
Steamboat is springing ahead this season with a massive, three-year $135m regeneration project – to transform the base area and make on-mountain improvements. Gondola Square will be offering additional dining, après and retail offerings, whilst the mountain will have 650 new acres of terrain in Pioneer Ridge.
