History: Lost in the snow
October 31, 2013
The "shoulder season" always seems to be a time for construction. And in 1969, it was no different. The crunch was on to get buildings built before the winter season started as the Snowmass Resort was still being built. But early snows such as those this year didn't help with construction. Help the Aspen Historical Society identify this building being constructed in the fall of 1969: Where was it? We think it looks like a ticket booth with a restaurant at the base of Fanny Hill. Do you remember?
