Skico to uphillers: Lift 1A side of Ajax is closed

Staff report

The west side of Aspen Mountain near Lift 1A is closed to all uphill traffic until further notice, Aspen Skiing Co. said Thursday via a statement emailed to media.

There will be closure signs in place, but Skico wants to notify uphillers in advance to stay away from the area.

"The closure is for safety reasons as Skico prepares the World Cup course," the statement said. "There will be heavy snowcat and snowmobile traffic in the area from now through the post-race tear down."

The World Cup Aspen Winternational is set for Nov. 28 and 29.
