Snowmass History: Softball rivalry, 1982
“In full swing” a headline in The Aspen Times read on July 1, 1982. “Leah Principe takes a cut during Monday’s game between arch rivals Snowmass Company and Ski Co. Principe and her Snowmass teammates suffered their first defeat of the season. … Snowmass Company was the last ladies softball team to fall from the unbeaten ranks, losing 21-20 to defending champion Ski Co in the bottom of the sixth. The contest between this year’s front runner and last year’s champs was marked by good hitting and poor fielding as both teams scored early and often.”
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.
