For skiers and boarders seeking a variety of challenging terrain, Aspen Mountain serves up an enticing menu of bumps, glades and steeps. While the mountain is a haven for the fast and the fearless, those who slow down and look around will discover there’s a lot more going on than first meets the eye. A fun way to learn about the mountain’s high alpine environment is on a snowshoe tour. Tours are offered twice daily throughout ski season. One afternoon during a recent Aspen visit, I swapped my ski boots for snow boots and joined a mountain adventure of a different nature. (continue reading…)

Cat Skiing at Ski CooperTucked away on top of Tennessee Pass, you’ll find a ski resort that packs in big adventure and small town charm. Imagine great snow, close-in parking, affordable lift tickets, and no lift lines.  This is Ski Cooper.

While there is access to a variety of trails on their two chairlifts (well five if you count the platter, handle tow, and Colorado’s longest Magic Carpet), they have one very awesome trick in their back pocket: CAT SKIING!

Cat Skiing at Ski Cooper

The Chicago Ridge Snowcat day trip promises picturesque views and backcountry comfort.  Here, you’ll unpack your skis and boards and launch into open bowls and gladed terrain.  The cozy snowcat drops you at the top of each run, so you can enjoy turn after powdery turn of crowd-free skiing.  Reenergize with a gourmet lunch inside a heated yurt.  This is the way backcountry skiing was meant to be enjoyed.   It’s an adventure that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.
