The changing apres-ski scene

SNOWMASS VILLAGE - Pictured are tourists and locals enjoying the afternoon sun on the deck of the Timbermill on the Snowmass Village Mall in 1978. The Timbermill was a popular apres-ski and live music bar with a lively scene in the 1970s. One band that used to play often was Commander Cody, whose hit song was "Hot Rod Lincoln." It was also one of the first bars to get the video game "Pong." Note the beer of choice in the '70s - Coors - stacked in the background.
