More powder at Aspen Highlands

It seems the snow will never stop falling! Monday brought face shots down Ozone – one of the most awesome runs of the season for me. I think there were about 137 skiers on the whole mountain. The word spread fast and Tuesday saw about 2500 skier visits! Maroon Bowl (adjacent to Highlands Bowl) slid overnight – photos below. I have never seen such an extensive slide before. The fracture line looked at least 20 feet deep in places and it pretty much slid to dirt. The second picture shows the Maroon Bells in the background. Lots of lovely new fluffy light powder today and again, like Monday, not so many skiers so more untracked lines in Ozone around 2:30pm!!!!

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!
