Description
 
Aspen Highlands is one of the four ski areas in Aspen, Colorado. It is famous for the Highland Bowl, which provides some of the most expert skiing in Colorado. The lift system has recently been redone and provides easier access to the Bowl.

The Highland Bowl has been the favorite of Aspen Highlands, since 2002. Most of the terrain is accessed only by hiking from the top of Loge Peak, although a snowcat can cut the distance by a third. The Highlands ski patrol monitors the Bowl and conducts avalanche control for skier safety. The Bowl faces primarily east, towards Aspen Mountain. Generally, the best snow to be found is in the north-facing G-Zones ("G" corresponds to green ski wax, for the coldest temperature snow). The B-Zones (for blue wax) face east and descend down the center of the bowl from the 12,382 ft. (3,774 m) summit of Highland Peak. The south-facing Y-Zones (yellow wax), are the steepest, with slopes as steep as 48 degrees, according to Aspen Highlands trail maps.

These can be skied without hiking if one rides the snowcat. Prior to the construction of the Deep Temerity lift in 2005, a run down the Highland Bowl required then taking the Grand Traverse, a long, flat catwalk, to get back to the Loge Peak lift. The Highland Bowl also offers access from the summit into the steep and highly avalanche prone back-country Five Fingers Bowl.

Great Product and Service January 9, 2015
Reviewer: Brian Klumpp from Traverse City, MI United States  
I just made my first purchase from your company last week and was very pleased with the entire experience.  The selection of products was great and I was very happy with the item when it arrived.  The delivery was prompt and it even included a personal note from the owner.  My son will love his Christmas present which will help to announce his first ski trip to Colorado.
