Grand Prix Trail Built for
As pen's 20th Anniversary

In celebration of the 20th Anni-
versary of skiing in Aspen, Colo-
rado, the Aspen Highlands ski
area is opening one of the finest
and most challenging downhill
runs ever seen on this continent.
The new Grand Prix trail begins
inthe 11,800 ft. Loges Peak area
and continues on down below 9,-
000 ft. where it connects with other
slopes going to the base of the
mountain. As a younger member
of the family of ski areas in Aspen,
Aspen Highlands is making this
unique 20th Anniversary presen-
tation of a great new racing trail
with the feeling that it will con-
tribute to make the next 20 years
of Aspen skiing as superb as the
last 20 years have been.
The Grand Prix is reached by
regular Aspen Highlands ski lifts;
but it runs west of existing trails,
enabling complete isolation from
recreational skiers while racers
are training or having a meet.
This solves one of the biggest prob-
lems in race administration for
the ski area,'and adds a welcome
safety feature for the skiing racer.
Another feature of the exciting
Grand Prix is that it is approxi-
mately 200 feet wide all the way
down. This gives course setters a
flexibility necessary to adjust tol
the racers' particular ability level
and to best utilize optimum snow
conditions any time of the season.
There are two extremely steep
pitches in the rapid descent of the
run; and these are already refer-
red to as the "Moment of Truth."
Recently Willy Shaefler, coach
of the Denver University ski team
and well known international rac-
ing mentor, with Chuck Ferries,
U. S. Women's Olympic Team
Coach and former Olympic racer,
made an appraisal tour of the
Grand Prix. Always looking for
terrain that will challenge and im-
prove the top ski racers of our
country, Schaefler and Ferries
were thrilled with the race pros-
pects of the new trail at Aspen
Highlands. Both agreed that only
top A racers at their peak of train-
ing and conditioning should be
allowed to race the full coarse. A
trail such as this with 10,000 ft.
HAPPY

of length and a 2,800 vertical des-
cent requires a racer to be at the
height of his capabilities. For
these reasons, the Grand Prix has
been selected as the site of the
Roch Cup downhill this year.
Then Schaefler, Ferries and other
coaches will be able to test the
skill of theirrracers on truly cham-
pionship terrain.
"Fantastic" is the only word
Fred Iselin, Aspen Highlands Ski
School Director; has for the trail.
Fred is justifiably pleased, since
he was instrumental in the design
and layout of the Grand Prix rac-
ing trail. Actually, studies of the
region have been made in prev-
ious ski seasons to check snow
depth, possible routes, etc. With,
the continuing arrival of winter
snows, the Grand Prix will be
ready to offer a challenge to ex-
pert skiers from all over the world.
When not in use as a race course,
advanced skiers are welcome to
celebrate 20 years of skiing in As-
pen with exciting runs down the
Grand Prix of Aspen Highlands.

LIKE A FOREIGN VILLAGE:
Travel to Colorado
Ski Vail Mountain

There are many faces of Vail,'
one of the most unique areas in1
America. Vail is a village design-I
ed by skiiers, for skiers, as pic-
turesque as a town in the Tyrol.
Vail is a mountain; vast and broad
shouldered, wide open slopes or
steep, forest bordered trails. Vail
is silky powder snow and golden
Colorado sun; there is more snow
and warmer sun than skiers dare
to dream of. Vail is a special kind
of people; colorful, fun-loving,
friendly. Vail is a spirit, young,
vibrant, exciting, yet imbued with
the old traditions of the Alps. Vail
is winter magic, translated into a
big new ski resort, a totally new
dimension in American skiing.
Vail lies in the heart of Colo-
rado, ski country U.S.A., just over
100 miles from Denver. Arriving
at the foot of the mountain in the
little village one is swept by its
beauty and its quaintness-it's like
being in a foreign village. From
the main ski lodge at the foot of
the mountain the gondola, or a
four passenger enclosed cable car,
rises two miles up to Mid-Vail ov-
er a glorious view of America. At
this mid point is another lodge
with a large restaurant. A very
unique feature outside is the snow
bar where the skier who is in a
hurry or want to do something
slightly unusual can have hot
pizza and a beverage while still
on skis. Then it's back to the maze
of waiting in line for one of the

chair lifts, one has a choice of go-
ing down either side of the moun-
tain, or the bowls as they are call-
ed-"Sun Up" or "Sun Down". Or
-a run all the way down to the
bottom can be a challenge-a new
path discovered each time. All in
all, Vail boasts five long chair
lifts plus the gondola. Even the
non-skier can enjoy this spot -
the glorious gondola ride, the
view, the excitement of the ski-
ing atmosphere, the friendliness
of the skiers, the shops in the vil-
lage, the outdoors, just being in
God's country.
At night the little village lights
up and is filled with apres-ski ex-
citement. There are restaurants,
nightclubs, and many hotels full
of friendly people looking for good
times. For college students espec-
ially, there is swinging atmos-
phere.
If you're really a bug for ski-
ing and classes don't lure you
back to the big U immediately af-
ter New Year's Eve, Vail offers a
very special package deal for the
first weel in January. This pack-
age for $100.00 per person includes
six nights lodging, breakfast and
dinner in the cafeteria including
tax and tips, six day lift tickets
and five day ski school. Accommo-
dations will be in the family rooms
with four single beds and a private
bath. So get your friends together
and head for a unique trip to the
many faces of Vail.

cents in the world. Besides all of
the scenery, Aspen Highlands al-
so offers an abundance of slopes
for skiers of all abilities, with a
favorite run for everyone.
