Aspen Highlands again – the Bowl and the Bear Tree

Another great powder day at Highlands yesterday. The Bowl looked very windy and visibility was variable as clouds kept coming and going but we hiked it anyway and were rewarded with an awesome run down G6 in mostly untracked snow. Below is a photo of the ridge before we climbed! I also took a few runs in Deep Temerity and took a photo of one of my favourite trees. you can see the bear claw marks in it and at the top there is an “eye” with marks that look just like eyelashes!

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 an Associate Broker with Basalt Realty. I love to ski, snowboard, horseride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
