To celebrate Snowmass’ 50th anniversary, Aspen is offering $6.50 lift tickets on Friday, December 15th. The tickets are only good for Snowmass Mountain, not Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, or Buttermilk Mountains. On opening day in 1967, lift tickets were only $6.50, which prompted them to offer this incredible deal.
