Yes, Walsh’s is open early
While officials with Aspen Skiing Co. and longtime Aspen skiers were racking their brains this week trying to remember if double-black-diamond terrain such as Walsh’s and Kristi have even been open at Thanksgiving before, local skier Michelle Fox provided the definitive answer.
Fox sent an email to a reporter Wednesday that said Walsh’s was open on Thanksgiving 1996. It was a memorable day for her. She was engaged to her husband, Preston, while skiing the trail.
At any rate, it’s a rare occurrence for steep, expert terrain to be open this early. Enjoy!
The differences between Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo and Michael Buglione — whether professional, political or personal — were on full display at Thursday’s candidate debate held in Aspen.
