I love skiing – I am a telemark skier and I just can’t wait for the snow to fly every year. I’ve also been known to ski in July, but that’s a whole other story.
I am also a lucky guy. My wife grew up in Aspen, Colorado and her family still lives there so we have a free place to stay. We make frequent trips there in the winter, just hoping to be there on an epic powder day – which we have had quite a few of over the years!
And that is where we’ll be spending the holidays. The mountains of Colorado have had a great start to the ski season with lots of the fluffy white stuff. We plan to hit the slopes a couple of times.
When most people think of Aspen, they think about the epic downhill skiing but there is a whole other world of skiing in Aspen as well. Aspen has the largest free nordic ski system in North America with over 50 miles of groomed track and additional ungroomed trails. Check out our video about cross-country skiing in Aspen.
