AVSC programs begin Saturday
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN ” Ski school is back in session for Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club participants. But first, participants have to get there.
The club’s programs begin Saturday at Snowmass and Aspen Highlands. Parking at both locales is limited and the Aspen Skiing Co. is encouraging families to carpool or take advantage of other transportation options.
For AVSC programs at Snowmass, kids in first grade and up will meet at Two Creeks, while youngsters enrolled in the Aspenaut program (children age three though kindergartner) will meet at the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center, which has no parking or drop-off area.
Free parking is available at Lot C and Two Creeks until 10 a.m. for vehicles with four or more occupants. Those traveling from Lot C or Two Creeks can utilize the Snowmass Shuttle to get to the Treehouse.
A special Aspen Skiing Co. shuttle will leave Two Creeks for the Treehouse at 8:45 a.m. and 9:10 a.m. Parents using this option must be present to sign their child onto the bus.
Other options include parking at the Rodeo Lot and hopping on the Snowmass Village Shuttle No. 4, which runs directly to the Treehouse. Or, park at the timed village lots 5 or 6, walk to the end of the mall and ski or take the Sky Cab/Skittles gondola down to the Treehouse, located at the base of Fanny Hill.
Parking is also available at the Brush Creek intercept lot, where parents and/or children can pick up a RFTA bus to the Treehouse.
For the first week of the program, all AVSC students headed to Aspen Highlands must meet at the AVSC building behind Aspen High School between 9 and 9:15 a.m. From there, they will be shuttled to Highlands with the club.
