WHY: Simple, Highland Bowl. This mountain was made for those who like to hike for big lines in patrol-controlled terrain. Pair that on-mountain action with the beautiful people and raging party scene of Aspen, and you can burn the candle at both ends like a rock star.
WHAT: It’s all about hiking for turns in the Bowl, where the wind can fill in goodies long after storms. Don’t be shy about dropping in before you reach the summit if you see something good. Lap the Deep Temerity lift if the Bowl is closed.
WHERE: Embarrass yourselves with karaoke on Thursday–Saturday at the Red On- ion. “Take on Me” is always a crowd pleaser.
