Our blog post about a month ago highlighted the extended spring skiing hours at all Aspen/Snowmass ski resorts. But now, just to add an extra-special something to the Spring Celebrations in Aspen, the ski company has announced Sunset Skiing! For all those extra minutes of beautiful sunshine at the end of the day, you can now ski until 6 p.m. on a handful of days throughout March and April! Enjoy the gorgeous views, sunsets and on-mountain dining option! See other Spring Jam events!

Due to a late Easter this spring, Aspen/Snowmass will have one of its longest seasons to date. Aspen Highlands will stay open for three more weeks than usual through April 24, providing guests more time to experience spring skiing in Aspen/Snowmass. Sunny days, spring powder, live music and après parties will keep the 2010-2011 season going longer than ever.
Stay with us at the Inn at Aspen and have ski-in ski-out lodging 'til closing day of Buttermilk. And then, be only minutes away from incredible spring skiing at Aspen, Highlands and Snowmass!
