For Wintersköl of 1969, The Aspen Illustrated News covered the events which spread from Aspen to Snowmass. “Snowmass-at-Aspen hosted a host of events on Sunday. Dog teams were running all day and pulling weights in the afternoon. Snowmobile races and tubing races filled out the afternoon. Ski-joring at noon held some spectacular runs.”

Also, in a heated contest, “Snowmass ski school won the broomball game Saturday night by tromping both the other ski schools.”
