The mood is festive, the sky is blue and the slopes are hard packed. We haven't had any real snow to speak of in a while. There has only been one 6 inch day so far this year and it's getting frustrating for those of us who thrive on POW.
Who doesn't like to speed ski straight down a steep, icy-hard Aspen Mountain going waaaaaaaaaaaay too fast---- just hoping to stay upright. Turn?? Naaaah, we've been doing figure 11's for weeks now. Avoiding those tourists texting in the middle of Spar Gulch or the slow skiing snow snakes (led by a red-jacket) going sideways across the fall line has become a necessity.
The Christmas Holidays are PRIME TIME in ASPEN (click 4 pix).
