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!
