Video published by Barry Stevenson shows the remaining buildings at the historical silver mining site covered in snow.

According to the Aspen Historical Society, the town of Ashcroft was bigger than Aspen back in 1883, and had a “population of perhaps 2,000 with two newspapers, a school, sawmills, a small smelter, and 20 saloons.” Currently, the site now features the restored remains of “several historical buildings, including a saloon, post office, and hotel.”
