Thank you, thank you, thank you Aspen Skiing Co. for two of the best opening weekends in 33 years.
The powder at Snowmass on Nov. 9 and 10 was great. The Aspen Valley Ski Club day on Nov. 15 was epic. The untracked, bottomless powder down the upper Face of Bell on Saturday (Nov. 16) was a $200 run.
Long lift lines and the occasional lift breakdown at the beginning of the season are expected and well tolerated by the locals. No apologies please. Now if I could only keep up with Amy and Justin.
