Ski Sh*tstorm

Aspen Skiing Co. has shut down the Silver Queen Gondola for two days as it struggles to find a replacement part. The news couldn't come at a worse time, with Aspen packed with tourists for the holiday season. A 17 minute gondola ride now takes over 40 minutes using a combination of other Ajax lifts. SkiCo is doing its best to stay positive, handing out donuts and pastries to appease skiers on Monday. Rumor has it that on Tuesday morning they will hand out bacon, because, well, bacon solves everything. [Aspen Daily News]
