Last year I kicked things off at Aspen Highlands, one of the 4 mountains in the Aspen ski area. This mountain is totally different than anything I have ever skied. It just goes straight up and back in a long narrow kind of a ski zone with runs funnelling away from the lifts. You must go all the way up, and then do the 45 minute hike up to the top and hit the Highland Bowl. It is an incredible immense and steep bowl. Check it all out on this Aspen Highlands trail map with photo overlays.
