Snowmass briefs: Art at High Alpine; Power of Four returns
Warming tent now displaying action and adventure sports photography
RED BULL ILLUME DEBUTS AT HIGH ALPINE TENT
The large green tent next to High Alpine at Snowmass has served as a warming and dining area throughout most of the season.
Now, it has an added purpose as an art gallery, showing imagery from the Red Bull Illume international photo contest. Admission is free to view the collection of action and adventure sports photography.
Seating for dining is still available; the large display panels that showcase the photos also function as COVID-friendly dividers between tables.
For those inspired to submit their own work after seeing winners from competitions past, the 2021 iteration of the contest is open at redbullillume.com.
POWER OF FOUR RACE KICKS OFF SATURDAY
The Power of Four ski mountaineering race kicks off in Snowmass Base Village bright and early Saturday morning, but the start will be a spectator-free event this year.
Sport division racers will begin in a staggered start at 6 a.m. Saturday for the race that traverses all four mountains to finish at the base of Aspen Mountain. The Power of Two course for recreational-division skiers begins at 8 a.m. in Aspen Highlands Base Village near the Thunder Bowl chairlift. No spectators are allowed at the start of either competition.
