Opening Weekend in Aspen is always a blast. Thanksgiving Dinner. Skiing on Aspen Mountain, The FIS Ladies World Cup Skiing races mixed in with plenty of events, concerts and parties....a nice little weekend.
The FIS traveling 400 showed up in Aspen for the only Ladies race scheduled on U.S. soil this year, (although there is talk about rescheduling the Val d' Isere races in Aspen or Vail in early December due to lack of snow in Europe). The World Cup skiers, their coaches, the handlers, the tuners, the sponsors, and the entourages came to Aspen for the Aspen Winternational Giant Slalom and Slalom competitions. The race course on Ajax is known as the toughest on the World Cup circuit. Steep and highly technical with several terrain changes Aspen Mountain brings out the best in The World's Fastest Women.
These ladies are FAST...and they CHARGE IT. (more photos coming soon)
