Snowmass History: Closing day at Snowmass, 1974
Calendar notes by Jim Snobble, Snowmass General Manager, in “The Story of Snowmass” book by Paul Anderson and Catherine Lutz remind us of closing day at Snowmass on April 14, 1974.
“…and again, unbelievably enough, another record breaker by quite a margin despite a very poor start from late opening because of thin snow until Christmas but once snow came, so did the crowds & it turned out to be a fantastic year with very few big problems despite early scary warm spell, superb closing snow conditions with deep bases (115” on Burn, 93” on Knob). As always, am terribly tired at end, but sad to see it over.”
Snowmass Village retailers combined to generate $2.2 million in revenue in July, which translated to $247,891 in sales tax collections for the town’s general fund, according to the latest tax report available.
