On the day that Aspen and Snowmass mountains were closing, my friends and I got after it and caught the first chair at Aspen Highlands, and there were NO lines. To the tune of bombs going off, we searched for dropped ropes below the bowl and skied in the new 1 foot of freshies — and then the bowl opened, and the rope was dropped on Northwoods. Watch the Video!
I have been asked many questions about Aspen; “What should I wear there?”, “How will we eat if it is so expensive?”, “Why would I want to visit Aspen?” and my answers to all of these questions are, “Just come as you are and you will see that Aspen is a ski town first and foremost where the fashion is predominantly jeans and workout clothes. Sure an occasional diamond ring can be a bit distracting, and stunning BTW, and the fur comes out in the wintertime, mostly when it’s freezing but is that any reason to not visit? I should say not!”
