Mountain Mayhem: Closing Time

As always, Aspen Highlands closed with a bang, wrapping up the ski season with a party of epic proportions at the base. Practically every outlet was open to celebrate with Echo Da Funk spinning at The Ritz, DJs dueling at the Alehouse, pop-up parties at Highlands condos, and Suerte Tequila pouring drinks at Strafe Outerwear. Anything goes on Closing Day, so it wasn’t out of the ordinary to see superheroes roaming the grounds, animals sharing a shotski, or cowgirls lined up at the bar. This Saturday, Snowmass is throwing a party akin to Highlands’ festivities, followed by a Hawaiian themed event on Sunday at Ajax Tavern at the base of Aspen Mountain. Thanks to Aspen Skiing Co., the lifts on Aspen Mountain will remain open through April 23 so there’s still time to fit in one last wrap party.
