More changes in store Monday on Aspen Mountain as World Cup Finals prep continues
If you’re going up Monday on Aspen Mountain, you will see a few more changes as preparations amp up for the World Cup Finals, which start March 15 with the downhill.
Starting Monday, crews will be installing B-net on the skiers’ right side from the start of the downhill course to Aztec. Ruthie’s Run will be open but narrower.
And remember, those who ski below the bottom of Ruthie’s will have to use Magnifico Road and go back to the gondola.
Lift 1A is open for public access to the mountain, but is not open for return skiing. There will be signs warning skiers of the cutoff.
These closure will remain until after the World Cup Finals end March 19.
