Buttermilk goes uphill April 8 to 9

The city and Aspen Skiing Co. are partnering to extend the uphill season by hosting a weekend of free access at Buttermilk Mountain on April 8 and 9. Lifts will not be running, but crews will groom 70 percent of the terrain to all three portals — Tiehack, Main and West Buttermilk for all-mountain access.

Options for uphilling will include ski touring, trail running, snowshoeing, split boarding and hiking. Hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 8 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9.

Food and beverage options will be available throughout the weekend at the top and the bottom of the mountain. Four Mountain Sports will be open with rental options, gear and end-of-season specials. The base of Buttermilk Mountain will turn into a “Festival Village” with vendors, demo booths, guides and clinics for the public. Beginners can demo equipment on Panda Peak. To sign up as a vendor, contact Susan Cross scross@aspensnowmass.com.
