a little place called ASPEN Highlands

While rockin the X-Games we had to take advantage of the fantastic wrath of old man winter. Armed with onehellofa guide we made the hike to the Highlands bowl. Under the fantastic direction of our guide Matt we waited 15 minutes or so....our patience was rewarded as the hard working ski patrol opened the gate to the Fun Deck where we donned the snorkel & dropped into the beautiful snowy oblivion. Eddie getting 'er rollin' early in the day.
Matt & Eddie know what lies ahead
The group heading out onto the Fun Deck.
The second run of the day...we made it past the fun deck & to 12,392 ft at the Peak Gate. There ski patrol was picking lucky riders one-by-one to drop into what for me was the ride of my life, somewhere between G6 & G8.
Hallelujah!

More backcountry snowmobile action to come...
