Safe in Snowmass

Aspen Historical Society, Aspen Times Collection

Back in the ’70s and ’80s, softball was the most popular summer sport. People took it very seriously, even recruiting newcomers for their teams before those individuals had housing. In 1982, it was a tough season with the league leaders, the Snowmass Team, fighting their way to the end. Unfortunately, a crucial game held in late June between the City Team and Snowmass Team was lost with a lopsided score of 14-3. Not done yet, they did manage to secure a second-place finish after a final win over the Skico Team, avenging an earlier loss.

Editor’s note: This page is a partnership between the Snowmass Sun and the Aspen Historical Society with two primary goals in mind: to improve the knowledge of Snowmass history in the

region and to collect historical photographs of the Snowmass region for the society.
