X Games Aspen

The 2023 X Games Aspen is on live from Buttermilk on ABC as I write this. It’s been snowing hard during the X Games which started here Aspen in 2002. It’s been absolutely snowing the whole time since the X Games started yesterday. We’ve had one great start to our winter season with record snow here in Aspen and Snowmass.

The Aspen X Games is like a three ring circus. Buttermilk Mountain is our beginner ski area that is transformed every X Games into the venue to host the best of the best. The developers of Buttermilk in 1959 built it because Aspen Mountain was too hard to teach new skiers. They would’ve never imagined that the X games with the world’s best winter athletes would have been held on their beloved, beginner mountain. They would’ve never believed that it would be shown to the world on color television at night under lights. The X games is a scene with DJs and musical performers, beer, gardens, and food. 40,000 spectators can watch from the bottom looking straight up the super pipe. Buttermilk base area just went through a $27 million facelift which was completed right before the X games.

VRBO Snowmass Ski In Ski Out

When booking a vacation rental in Snowmass Village Colorado you have lots of choices when it comes to booking your vacation rental. You can book with a local vacation rental company like Aspen Snowmass Rentals  or you can book through a big company like VRBO. Keep in mind when booking with a big company like VRBO they have an extra service fee. They know nothing of the area and nothing about the restaurants and ski shops. They know nothing about activities or the ins and outs of every nook and cranny of our Valley. Book with us direct, save money and deal with real locals. When choosing a ski in ski out rental, many companies will tell you that the property is actually ski in ski out when it’s really not.

Aspen Snowmass

Aspen Snowmass set a new modern day record for the most skiers in one day on all 4 of our ski mountains.

Aspen From Silver To Skiing

Aspen Colorado was founded in 1879 and became the largest producer of silver in the world. Within a decade, Aspen became the third largest city in Colorado. 14 years after its founding silver was demonetized in 1893 and our money went from being backed by silver to being backed by gold. Aspen started it slow decline in the what we call the quiet years. Aspen went from around 12,000 people down to 200. In the mid 30s the local started skiing in Aspen and the rest is history.
