    2019/20 Aspen/Roaring Fork Thread

    Since people have been shredding already, figured it was time to get the annual thread fired up.

    I headed up Snowmass this past weekend and wasnít disappointed. Nothing special, just great to be making turns.

    Skinned Ajax at 3pm yesterday to the top. Really nice with full shade and full groom. Mellow crowds compared to earlier in the day and Highlands last weekend.

    Got my workout in, dragging the 20y/o touring ďrock skisĒ up.

    Lady friend is planning a trip for my birthday, we're eying a quick lap out to Aaaaahhspen the first week in Dec. Thinking it may be WROD-heavy trip. How extensive/reliable are the WROD-making capabilities here? Worth a trip even if we get skunked?

    I've heard the Canadian Rockies are supposed to get pummeled over the next couple weeks - maybe switch to something up there?

    Aspen, like most other places in Colorado, sucks without quite a bit of snow. YMMV.

    If youíve got Ikon passes and arenít paying, you could have some decent groomer skiing. If youíre paying to ski, Iíd say no at this point.

    Still no real moisture in the 10-day. Aspen has ok coverage on the main groomers, but it needs some real snow to be decent. Highlands wonít open till 12/7, so youíd be limited to Aspen and Snowmass groomers.

    What day would you actually travel?

    They are predicting 12/1 as the busiest air travel day in history! Iíd imagine the next couple of days will still be kind of busy, especially if we get a weather disruption during the holiday.

    Itís always best early season,to pick at the last minute, but this week might be problematic.

    That being said. Aspen Mountain skis better on >25Ē than anywhere.
    Art and the boys get the goods open fast, if we do get snow.

    Thereís always a ton of shows at the Belly Up, good restaurants and nice hotels, even if the skiing isnít great.

    3 more inches coming this week, then maybe something Monday/Tuesday of next week. Definitely been very dry the last week, but at least cold enough to make snow I guess.

    I feel like 50/50, depending on what the storm actually brings our way. I would guess they stick with just Bell for this weekend.
