I have had the experience of opening day at Aspen Highlands where opening day is a huge locals celebration of winter. This is the closest I can compare to what the culture of die hard, powder and cool mountain terrain loving locals call “an epic day”.
From Eric K of RED Mountain:
“RED Mountain Resort has been fortunate to be in the path of many storms this fall as we have received over 217 cm (84 inches) of snow in the last two months. The upper mountain is in exceptional condition with an alpine base of 140 cms, or 4 ½ feet.”
If this is any inclination of things to come this winter, try something NEW! RED is legit.
“Snow Ghosts” reminiscent of my youth skiing in northwest Montana…
