Closing day at Aspen Mountain

Wow – what a difference a day makes! After a long wait for new snow it arrived on time for closing day! We raced up to Aspen to get some fresh tracks. Unbelievably there was pretty much no-one there – I was expecting a line at the gondola but there wasn’t one! Free parking as it was a Sunday and my daughter and I had so much fun making our own brand new tracks. I think 13-16 inches was reported but at times I was up to mid-thigh and my daughter was up to her waist. The photos show the difference from yesterday to today…. both taken from the gondola looking back at Aspen with Kleenex corner on left of photos.

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
