The World Pro Ski Tour (WPST) will open the 2024 race season at Aspen Mountain on Friday, January 12 for the 2024 season of professional ski races. The Aspen Snowmass Tour stop will feature two men’s and two women’s professional dual slalom races on Aspen Mountain’s Little Nell run.

“We are so excited to launch into this season with more races at the best ski racing venues in the country,” said Jon Franklin, CEO of the World Pro Ski Tour. “We begin at Aspen Mountain, which has incredible skiing heritage as part of the original Pro Tour with Jean Claude Killy, Spider Sabich and Billy Kidd racing down the Little Nell run, the same that we’ll be on.”
