    Sounds like today would have been a good day to be at Snowmass, if the snow totals being reported are accurate. But only those present can say for certain...

    Mondo props to shredhead for leading my age addled carcass around snowmassive. Had a blast, scored clean lines way out west somewhere before heading up top for the face hosage of pow. Shred’s the paragon of heart in the rfv. I’m rolling back sw to silverton

    Thanks!

    Anywhere else to park if the intercept lot is full? I don't mind paying to park if need be.

    1) going up to Snowmass Village, park in the rodeo and grab a bus down the hill.
    2) go into Aspen, busses will be running from Ruby Park
    3) If you are staying down valley, catch a bus from there.

    Snuck out for a few runs at Highlands yesterday, including a quick lap into Filip's that was stunning with some wind-blown pockets. Full mob out yesterday morning before they opened the Bowl.

    Bummer that I missed laps with Buster and Shred. I had my brother in town, also from the 206, and was playing tour guide at a mellow pace.

    Would like to have skied with both Dr. Sci and GR, but there's a lot of vectors out there.

    Dump day Monday @ ajax:


    Spent that day trying to keep up with Shred and buddies honking screamer t2b laps. Really enjoyed Gent Ridge variations and (west?) Bell punches when the forecast 1 inch turned into 5+.

    Ajax is laid out oddly and it was cool to be shown the way through the labyrinth of traverses and rolls.

    The big plus was hooking back into the conceptual continuum, brotherhood and and traditions of the mad ski freaks

    Thanks folks.

    Then on Tuesday, I popped my Snowmass cherry when Shred led me way out west (Powderhorn?) for a rip down unskied kneedeep before heading up the Bliss lift and railing around there for a couple of spins. With legs drained from 9 contiguous days of burning and Shred's constraints, we skied back to nthe base around noon.

    At his suggestion, I carved by Tiehack for a few loper runs in the little cut up pow and snapped the following with the Maroon Bells shrouding her shoulders in cloud:

    Hello CO Mags.

    I am in Aspen this coming week for work for a few days. The way my work schedule's setting up, I'll have little 2-ish hour breaks here and there over 4 days. No big chunks of time free.

    I think I know the answer to this, but is there any way to get avoid spending 600+ to ski those couple of hours each day? Any funky off-menu half day tickets or similar?

    They do sell 1/2 day tickets for after Noon. I want to say they're around $120 walk-up?

    If you can get 3-4 50% off coupons (i'm out...), you can apply those to a 3 or 4 day up-front purchase and it comes down to $70-75/day. I'm not sure if you could do that same deal with 1/2 day tickets.

    Awesome!

    I have this week off on a vacation day use it or lose it force from my employer and a green light from the wife to roll solo. I am thinking maybe Aspen Wed, Thurs to burn up my free days on the MC. Maybe some surprise snow in the bowl like last time I came over?

    Down to Salida for Monarch pass laps Friday/Saturday with a friend.

    It would be super cool to meet up. Sleeping in my car somewhere Tuesday night night probably up by Sunlight and have a bunk at the St. Moritz in Aspen on Wed night so I can go out for beers and stash my car there.

Thanks Aspen and Aspen mags that offered to meet up...we didn't make it happen but I was never alone and my bum knee green lighted some real skiing without complaining. Off to Salida.

    Never been, excited to see Highlands.

    Yeah, a few feet at Highlands over the last two weeks; should be good leftovers for you. I might be up there tomorrow if I can shake a little sore throat!

    Might not even be leftovers, there's snow in the forecast every day this week and I was still finding plenty of fresh today at 2pm. It's prime time around here right now.

    Highland Bowl is the marquee terrain in the Valley. But both Aspen and Snowmass are also very good mountains, with great gated terrain. You have should hit all three.


    Iím injured and stuck on the groomers and low angle pow, but Iíd be happy to show you around.

    My thoughts too.
    Fun hiking into the bowl; G3(?) and MoshPit.

    Which mountain for tomorrow (will it snow?)?
