I've read some of the other recent Aspen threads, but was looking for some specific tips for a first timer skiing alone. Also, if anyone will be there that time, would love to meet up for a few runs.
We're staying near town at the Aspen Meadows Wednesday through Sunday, then I spend Sunday night in Snowmass solo since I couldn't get a flight back Sunday. (Good deal on Hotwire for a nice hotel.).
I was planning on skiing some combo of Ajax and Highlands Thursday through Saturday, then Snowmass on Sunday. I hope to hike Highlands, but I'll have to see how I'm doing with altitude. I didn't have any problems at Winter Park, but who knows. Any must-do runs? Particular lifts or areas to explore? Places to avoid? Are any of the mountains better in certain kinds of weather? Powder day advice? Any après recommendations?
Thanks all, getting psyched!
