Mountain Mayhem: Let It Snow!
Last week’s snowstorm brought a much needed boost to both spirits and the slopes, blanketing town and the mountains with up to two feet of fresh powder. A group of guy friends from Georgia arrived just in time for their fourth annual Atlanta boys’ trip hosted by Mark Wassersug who has a house on the East side of town.
According to one of the Georgia gents, Josh Marks, “Winter operations were super smooth at Aspen Snowmass despite COVID. And it didn’t hurt that we brought a ton of snow with us,” he joked. “Restaurant ops were very well organized and we have to give a special shout out to Snowmass Elk Camp lifties for having killer classic rock tunes and trivia questions. Every lift base should have such a strong set list! And it was great having restaurants open for inside dining just after we arrived.”
If you haven’t yet visited Snowmass Luminescence, you still have time. The interactive art and light display presented in tandem by Snowmass Tourism and Aspen Snowmass, runs through February 28 from sunset to 9 pm. It’s not only free, but you have the option to walk or ski through and around it, making for a great first date or a family-friendly outing. I especially enjoyed The Tunnel, an interactive series of LED illuminated walkways and arches that ignite your senses. Additionally, there are two large-scale interactive LED installations by acclaimed artists, Submergence by Squidsoup and Prismatica by RAW Design in collaboration with ATOMIC3.
