Clarification regarding the Valley Pass

Greetings Bootpackers,

New this season bootpackers may volunteer for 3 days and earn voucher credit for a Valley Pass. Bootpackers must meet the same requirements as all other passholders, in order to receive a Valley Pass. Please refer to the details below or visit the Aspen Snowmass.com website for more information regarding the Valley Pass.

Valley Pass Details
Due to the economic and personal challenges created by Covid-19, the Valley Pass was designed specifically with residents of the Roaring Fork Valley in mind. The pass is only available to residents with a Colorado driver’s license that has an address within the area listed below. The Valley Pass may be subject to a reservation system if we need to implement one due to safety or health issues impacting mountain capacity.

Bootpacker Meeting Fall 2021

When:  Wednesday October 20, 2021

Location:  Outside in the plaza at the base of Aspen Highlands                (near the top of the escalators).

Time:  3:00 PM

Greetings Bootpackers

It is time to start preparing for the 2021-22 bootpacking season.

 We have scheduled our annual meeting to inform everybody about the bootpacking program, sign releases, and answer questions.  This meeting is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all participants, even those who have participated in the past, as this is when the necessary waivers and releases are signed. We will make the meetings as short as possible as we understand everybody has a busy schedule. 

Click on the “bootpacking” tab at the top of this page and enter your contact information to get on the 2021-22 bootpacker list.

We are trying to expand our bootpacking program.  New this season, we are offering a Valley Pass to bootpackers who volunteer for three days.  In the past bootpackers had to volunteer at least five days in order to be offered credit toward a ski-pass of any type.  We hope by lowering the initial commitment, we will get more people to try the bootpacking program.  Tell all of your friends and invite them to the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you Wednesday October 20, 2021 at 3:00 PM.

Kind Regards

AHSP

Bootpacking 2021-22

Greetings Bootpackers,

We are still working out the details for our bootpacking program this season. However, we anticipate we will return to a more normal routine. Hopefully, the snow will arrive in a more timely manner than it did last season and we will be able to start bootpacking in early November.

In the meantime you may click on the bootpacking tab and sign up for bootpacking this season. We will e-mail everyone who has signed up once more details have been finalized.

Thank you for your interest in the Aspen Highlands bootpacking program.
