While there were phones and phone books that listed folks along Brush Creek Road and Owl Creek Road in the rural directory, it wasn’t until the new village was developed that Snowmass residents had listings for businesses. According to The Snowmass Villager on Nov. 23, 1967 the “New phone book out in December. Looking for a telephone number for West Village? You’ll have to wait until the day after Christmas to find it in the phone book, according to George Krill, manager of the Aspen office, Mountain States Telephone. All parties who made application for telephones at West village by Nov. 17 will find themselves listed in the new directory which will be out Dec. 26, Krill said.”
