There are constants when it comes to these mountains and the people who seek them. The powdered slopes; the summertime trails and fishing — the sense that this place is not just an escape from the routine back at home, but a home of its own as well.
Around that, however, there's also a lot of change going on in Aspen. Owners and guests at The Timbers Club and Dancing Bear Aspen know that every season brings new developments, new events, new reasons to get outdoors.
This winter is no different. To help catch you up on the dynamics of the next several months, we've pulled together a list of highlights. Here some of what's new and exciting this season.
- Opening early! With a rush of November snow, Aspen Mountain is opening Saturday, November 22, 2014.
- World Cup Ski Races return to Aspen Mountain over Thanksgiving weekend - bringing the "Fast Women in Aspen" back to town after a year's hiatus.
- The X Games are back. January brings the rush of world-class skiing, snowboarding, motocross and snowmobile events. The best athletes in extreme sports converge on Aspen/Snowmass for the winter installment of the X Games, January 22–25, 2015.
- Buttermilk gets even better. To the tune of $10 million, the whole of Buttermilk is poised to offer big-time upgrades. Most notable will be the addition this season of The Hideout, a 7,500-square-foot children's space. Kids will enjoy a mix of indoor and on-mountain programming, all designed to foster imagination and active play.
- Family snow tubing at Snowmass. Four new lanes of family-friendly snow tubing open at Snowmass this December. The new feature is based at Elk Camp and is designed for 'tubers ages 4–14.
And so, update your calendars and grab your gear. Whether you're out there enjoying what's new on the slopes, or back here sipping an après-ski cocktail in our Owners' lounge or at Brexi, it's another brilliant winter in Aspen.
As always, Timbers Resorts welcomes you home.
