Too high off the ground

Special to the Sun

“Too High,” claimed the caption to an article in the Snowmass section of The Aspen Times on Oct. 23, 1986. It went on to explain that “the Aspen Skiing Co received permission from the town council to build a platter pull lift for first-time skiers near the base of Lift 2. The temporary use permit is good for one year. According to the Skiing Co, it wants to be prepared in the case that the new Fanny Hill lift, because of its increased length, does not serve first-time skiers effectively.” History repeated with the Skittles gondola when the new Fanny Hill lift was extended in 2007.
