No skiing at Aspen Highlands

Aspen Times Staff Report

ASPEN ” There will be no skiing at Aspen Highlands this Memorial Day weekend, the Aspen Skiing Co. announced Friday.

Skico officials were pondering how they could offer skiing, since there is an abundance of snow, spokesman Jeff Hanle said. But it was determined that staffing would be too tough to make it work. It would require pulling some workers off capital improvement projects at Snowmass. The company is loath to do that because construction deadlines already are tight.

There is still a chance that skiing will be offered beginning June 13 on Aspen Mountain, when the Silver Queen Gondola resumes operations for the summer. That evaluation will be made in early June, Hanle said.
