What's it like at Aspen resort?

Locals call it Ajax and this is the Aspen area's true performance ski mountain. Forget it if you are a beginner; there's nothing for you at Aspen. But there are plenty of intermediate trails and challenging black diamonds. There is Snow cat skiing on the back side of Aspen. Little Nell's is still the place to gather at the base. Lodging is in the form of 8,000 beds at the base of the mountain and 6,000 additional beds within 12 minutes. There is a free shuttle bus service to all ski areas around Aspen.

New snow makes wuss longer but snowboarding better, lines should get smaller as weekend ends.
