Snowmass and Aspen Mountain opened for the 2012-2013 season today with bluebird skies and soft groomed runs. Thankful skiers and snowboarders were all smiles on Opening Day.

A snowboarding Turkey was even spotted on Aspen Mountain, fully embracing the holiday, as seen in the photos.

In addition to Opening Day, this weekend marks the Audi FIS Ski World Cup on Aspen Mountain, featuring the world’s fastest women ski racers as well as a free concert on Saturday night with Reverend Horton Heat followed by fireworks over Aspen Mountain.
