Aspen reopens this weekend

Don't put those skis away.

Aspen Skiing Co. said it will open the top of Aspen Mountain for skiing this weekend because there's so much snow.
It's a first for the resort, said spokesman Jeff Hanle.
An average depth of more than 3 feet on the upper slopes will allow the ski area to open seven runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. About 45 acres of mainly intermediate terrain served by the Ajax Express chairlift will be available.
Aspen/Snowmass Premier, Silver and 6-and-under passholders can ski for free. Other pass- holders pay discounted rates.
Adult single-day tickets will be $29 a day, youth and seniors will pay $26, and children's tickets will cost $18.
