Pretty as a postcard

One postcard with a color image of a ski run at Snowmass, 1966-. There are several skiers on the run, and a caption on the back reads "Snowmass-at-Aspen: America's most exciting four-season resort. Opening December, 1967. The 'Big Burn' over a mile wide and as large as the total Buttermilk skiing area, is less than 1/10 of the total Snowmass ski area. Dotted with thousands of spruce trees, the 'Big Burn' is a most unique skiing environment within America's largest ski and winter sports resort. Come ski with Stein Eriksen, director of the Snowmass Ski School.".

A postcard image shows a ski run at Snowmass-at-Aspen circa 1966 and likely was taken when it was run as a cat-skiing operation prior to opening as a resort ski area in 1967. A caption on the back reads "Snowmass-at-Aspen: America's most exciting four-season resort. Opening December, 1967. The 'Big Burn' over a mile wide and as large as the total Buttermilk skiing area is less than 1/10 of the total Snowmass ski area. Dotted with thousands of spruce trees, the 'Big Burn' is a most unique skiing environment within America's largest ski and winter sports resort.
