On December 16, 1967, when Stein Eriksen loaded the first chairlift at “Snowmass-at-Aspen,” Snowmass was the largest and most complete winter resort in the country.
Snowmass has what many call a “fascinating history,” from the mammoths to the homestead ranchers of the Brush Creek Valley. “The Story of Snowmass,” written by Paul Anderson (who conducted more than 100 interviews in his research for the book), exclusively covers the history of Snowmass Village. Snowmass Tourism commissioned local filmmaker Greg Poschman (who is also (Pitkin County Commissioner) to produce a 30-minute anniversary film – which will premiere on Saturday, December 16th at the Golden Gala at the Viceroy.
Snowmass Ski Area manager Steve Sewell said, “This mountain means so much to so many people and there are generations of families that have grown up here.”
