Aspen is a good-looking ski town these days with fun in town and great skiing at thefour of the Aspen Mountain areas. We're glad to welcome ESPN Winter X Games 14 with some fresh powder on all our mountains. Granted, their job is to ski it off, but that's yours, too. We have a beautiful weekend on top of fresh snow over the past days. Be sure to take a break and watch the extreme sport action live, at Buttermilk. Compdtitions take place all weekend long. Or, catch the X-Games on ESPN at home, prime time. It's X-Citement all over Aspen, and a fun weekend for sure!
The snow continued to fall all last weekend, making Sunday's trip up Highlands Bowl much more pleasant and the skiing was even better. Face shots all the way down through untouched powder. Ajax "opened up" Pandora's and there was thigh deep powder Sunday and Monday. Hanging Valley was skiing the way it should, soft and fun.
The X-Games are upon us, with events taking place at the base of Buttermilk all weekend long. Catch them live in prime time on ESPN azt home! Buttermilk looks magical and BIG. The excitement is building and the crowds are coming.
The skiing IS phenomenal. We knew it. Friday at Highlands saw a cold hearty trek up the Bowl, with a large payoff just over the ridge; untouched lines and wholly soft, underfoot. The snow kept coming and Saturday saw enough powder for weekend warriors and week-long powder houds, alike. Snowmass rode like last season, pillows and fields and magically deep tree turns. And make no mistake, it was a stellar day on Ajax. More snow, and most certainly more action, with X-Games just ahead.
