Hero’s – The Renaissance on Aspen Mountain
This winter, Aspen Snowmass is bringing a remarkable area expansion, including a new high-speed quad chairlift at Aspen Mountain that will expand the ski area by over 20 percent. More than 60 hectares of new terrain offer additional skiing options and also serve as a hedge for potential climate-related challenges in the future. This expansion is a tribute to all those involved in the creation of the project, especially Jim Crown, whose vision and leadership were essential to the realisation of this ambitious undertaking.
