Aspen’s Ski for the Pass will be held Sunday
February 15, 2018
The Ski For the Pass classic ski race and fundraising event for the Independence Pass Foundation will be held Sunday.
The sixth annual event is at 10 a.m. at the winter closure gate 5 miles east of Aspen. Participants will ski up to Lincoln Creek Road. They are in for a treat because of the fresh snow and forecast for a bluebird day.
"It's gorgeous up the Pass right now," said Karin Teague, executive director of the Independence Pass Foundation.
Registration is $15 at the Ute Mountaineer or online at http://www.ute mountaineer.com. Click on the link for events and go to the "Ski for the Pass" picture.
All proceeds go to the Independence Pass Foundation's summer restoration projects.
"Don't miss your only chance of the year to ski a groomed classic track on Independence Pass," says the promotion for the event.
