Snowmass briefs: Sales tax rebates, Christmas tree drop-off, Fanny Hill townhome sales
News, announcements and updates from the Snowmass Village community
All-day uphilling back in action at Snowmass, Buttermilk, Highlands
Daytime uphill traffic has the green light at Snowmass, Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands after a week of uphilling blackout dates during the holiday.
Uphillers must follow one of four designated routes at Snowmass, originating from Two Creeks or Base Village; dogs must be off the hill by 7:45 a.m. and cannot go up until 4:45 p.m.
Buttermilk offers three designated routes (Tiehack, Buttermilk Main and West Buttermilk). Highlands offers one route to the Merry Go Round restaurant. Wphillers can continue above Merry Go Round if they reach the restaurant by 8:30 a.m.
As always, uphilling is off-limits at Aspen Mountain during operating hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Aspen also has added a new designated downhill route due to an abundance of traffic: skiers and snowboarders must ride down Copper, Copper Bowl and Little Nell.
Sales tax rebate application opens Jan. 8
Beginning Friday, full-time residents of Snowmass Village can apply for a $50 marketing sales tax rebate. The rebate is only available to applicants who lived in Snowmass Village for all of 2020.
The application and additional information will be posted at tosv.com.
Christmas Tree drop-off in Town Park
The Town Park Christmas tree “recycling” center is now open for Snowmass Village residents in the Rodeo Lot at Town Park through Monday.
Trees must be clear of all decorations (including ornaments, lights and tinsel) before drop-off. All trees dropped off at the recycling center will be composted at the Pitkin County Landfill; that compost will later be available for community purchase and use.
