Because I found myself with so many deep powder pics I decided that a third post from our huge storm was warranted– if it pushes my coverage from our big weekend into overkill, well, I’ll take that chance. But I’m also posting more from the weekend so I can pass along a big thanks to the Aspen Highlands Ski Patrol, for their efforts in getting everything opened in such a timely manner– that is, as fast as possible. Additional thanks are needed for one particular member of the AHSP, known in some circles as the “Powder Weasel,” who I featured in the photo above and quoted in the title, but who will otherwise remain anonymous because that’s the way he likes it. With his permission, a small group of us got a special preview of the Northwoods on Sunday afternoon, a day before its official opening on Monday.
And for proof to the insane conditions we found in G4, check out the pics below:
Thank you for skiing the Highlands you say?
It’s our pleasure.
Nice pics Ted! We got 4′ in VT last week, but somehow it didn’t look like that!
Magic. Scuba depth snow. Glad the “big one” finally arrived.
These pics are like a slow release pill…the goodness just keeps on coming!
Once upon a time there was a season in Aspen Colorado that lasted three and perhaps four days and those frickin’ days were awesome. The end. (Antijinx!!)
