History: ‘No snow (on road) makes news’

Aspen Historical Society
Special to the Sun

The Snowmass Villager reported in October 1967 about the newest road being built at the Snowmass-at-Aspen Resort.

"Seventeen-hundred and twenty feet of snow-free road leading to the West Village parking area at Snowmass-at-Aspen have made it possible to eliminate what was originally to be a serpentine access road twice as long. The unique road, which starts at the lower Willows Condominium, and goes to the upper Willows Condominium, cost $100,000, just for the concrete and snow-melting coils."

This road became known as "suicide hill" for the Coors Bike races held in the late '70s and early '80s.
