The Aspen social scene is already in full swing. Ski season 2009/10 is just getting started but our party docket is packed tight. AspenSpin has been skiing every day and partying every night---- it's a tough job---but somebody's gotta do it.
Wednesday we caught the rope drop on the FACE of BELL. It was a free-for-all on the cat-track as the first-time FRESHIES were made available to those brave enough to confront the sub-zero temps on Ajax. 3 laps in the previously untouched virgin snow was good for the head. Today (Thursday) we are fired up for the POWDER POSSE at Aspen Highlands. Hard-core riders can get the jump on the deep POW at AH-- just by showing up at 8.30 a.m. You don't even need a ski pass----- but come prepared to earn your turns as the ski patrol dictates the action. The POWDER POSSE along with the boot-packers crew will help get Aspen Highlands Bowl prepared for opening day.
Sandwiched in between POWDER DAYS, The Aspen Chamber Resort Association held their annual Holiday Party at the Limelight Lodge. On the same night AYPA (Aspen Young Professionals Association) hosted their Holiday Party. The POW Days, the parties---its starting to feel a lot like festivus.
