Ain't got no rock skis....
I'd be worried. Aspen is usually really thin early season, and traditionally, it has lots of rocks. They'll have groomers open on man made that will be rock free no matter what. If your looking for something else, it all depends on the snow god Ullr.
I'll be in in Colorado in three weeks as well, but only for a couple days. Not expecting much, but you never know and my plane ride was free so screw it. Early season ski trips are always a gamble.
I would recommend fasting or something along those lines and making an offering to the snow god Ullr as I did yesterday. A happy Ullr is a generous Ullr.
