Best snow year since ’83-’84? Some say since the resort opened? Skiing was terrific. Great conditions. Tons of fun. Flew in direct to Aspen for $299, somehow got randomly upgraded to first class, can’t complain about that. Got in Friday morning, Mom picked me up and was eating lunch at Gwyn’s on the mountain at noon – after waking up in Chicago at 6… how cool is that? Beats flying into Denver and driving 2 hours or so to the slopes. Also skiied a full day Monday and was home in bed by 11. So four days of skiing in… four days! Good deal. Family was great, stayed at the Snowmass club in a beautiful 4 bedroom condo. My little nieces were there and so much fun, and my sis’ in-laws who are terrific people. We go out every year, both families. I love the mountains. Something spiritual, relaxing about them that really does me good. Aspen in my opinion is very laid-back despite all the money – it’s like people have so much money they don’t need to flaunt it or something. Vail is the opposite, I feel like it’s nouveau-riche who are showy and feel like they need to prove something with their wealth, I don’t think I’m the only one who has noticed the difference. I’ve thought it for years, and again these last few weeks noticed again.
Aspen snow was DEEP
