Snow Base Village debuts on December 2018

The upcoming 2018/2019 winter ski season ushers in a renewed Snowmass with the opening of Snowmass Base Village and the Limelight Hotel Snowmass on December 15, 2018. The season also sees the opening of the new Snowmass Mountain Club, new restaurants and retail spaces and hotel renovations. “There has never been a better time to come to Snowmass,” says Rose Abello, Tourism Director, Snowmass Tourism.

“The opening of the new Base Village, including the Limelight Hotel with its five-story climbing wall, ice skating rink and event plaza, and Lumin Building with its creperie and new Four Mountain Sport store, bring new energy and vibrancy to Snowmass Village. All of this ‘new’ just augments the extraordinary Snowmass experience that we have come to know and love over the years,” says Abello.

Día de los Muertos at the Garden


For more than 3,000 years, indigenous people in Mexico practiced the tradition of celebrating death as a natural part of the life cycle. When the Conquistadors stumbled upon the Aztec Indians practicing this ritual, they believed it was a mockery of death. The Spaniards wanted to make this ritual more Christian, so they moved the dates to coincide with All Saints Day and All Souls Day (Nov. 1 and Nov. 2), when they believed the spirits of the dead visited their families.
