Video: Sunday morning sunrise on Maroon Bells, pond hockey on Maroon Lake
You likely have seen the pictures on social media or heard about the pickup pond hockey and skating going on at Maroon Lake the past few weekends near Aspen.
Sunday morning, we made the early-morning drive up the Maroon Creek Road to the Maroon Bells scenic area and came across a few hardy souls braving the chill at 7 a.m. for some skating.
The road is scheduled to close Friday for the winter.
Of the 10 players listed on the varsity roster ahead of Tuesday’s home game with Summit, two were juniors, seven were sophomores and one was a freshman. It’s a far cry from the class of 10 seniors who last season led the Skiers to a perfect 27-0 mark and the Class 3A state championship.
