Aspen Next week - Questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm skiing Aspen next week.

 

Arriving noon on Monday and leaving Saturday at noon-ish.

 

need advice based on sun and snow.

 

Basically, what mountains are better to ski on Sun days? what mountains better on Snow days?

 

what mountain should i spend most time at?

 

I'm staying downtown aspen - so i guess a trek away from snowmass.

 

But I'm staying one night at snowmass Friday - and will ski there friday.

 

any advice on how to spend my time?

 

Also, anyone know if they have half day passes in aspen?

Ski them all.  1/2 day starts at noon.  Avoid Snowmass on a windy day and hike the bowl on a nice one.

The bus makes it pretty convenient.  You didn't mention your terrain preference and competency.  Snowmass has the greatest variety of terrain with lots of terrain for everyone from an intermediate to a shredder.  Highlands gets the lowest traffic and has a lot of terrain oriented toward experts.  Aspen is, well, Aspen.  Not much for lower intermediates, but compact and interesting.  With lots of "interesting" people....
