Regarding the Skiing Corp.'s future operations, The Aspen Times stated on Nov. 16, 1962: "In addition, two completely new areas were announced for future development with snow cat touring service available during the coming winter. One of the new areas, Baldy Mountain above Brush Creek, will be exploited by the Aspen Skiing Corp., which will offer a guided touring service with snow cat transportation. The second new area, Little Annie Basin, will also offer snow cat transportation, both from a point near the Sundeck and from the Castle Creek road."
