Grooming

New Track set on entire system. Conditions are wonderful and are only going to get better with a little more snow to cover up the little bit of debris from this windy week. Parking lot was full of action as we were leaving with people taking advantage of the fresh tracks.

Picked up a bunch of sticks after some strong winds earlier today, including some of the remote parts of Big Aspen. There's a thin fresh layer since last grooming, but the track is skied-in and firm throughout. Likewise, pole planting is getting close to optimal, certainly firmer than 4 days ago. Everything is groomed and tracked, including the fabled Swamp Loop between points 13-14 in the northernmost reaches of this extensive and beautiful system.

Perfect. The trail had received two inches of snow after the last grooming, but most segments have been skied in. Tracks are firm and fast. Most trails look barely touched. All classic track and very little traffic. I'm planning to return soon to take advantage of the conditions.

Sublime! One could ski your whole life and never encounter conditions or place that would exceed what was served at Big Aspen today.

All sections of trails have been groomed and tracked. The conditions are amazing with all of the fresh snow. Beautiful time to be out in the woods.

Awesome trails. Grooming crew was just leaving the parking lot when I came out of the woods. The trails are just perfect. Great tracks all the way around. Great job by the groomers! Happy New year! Fire up!

The grooming crew was just leaving the parking lot when I came out. What a great job they did, the trails are as good as I've ever seen. Thanks to the professionals who did a great job. A perfect day to ski, all trails were fantastic! Fire up!

Perfect back country conditions with at least 12 inches on the trail. One skied in loop on the east from 1 to 5, 6, 7, 8 and back to parking lot. Clear deep track going counter clock wise. More jumbled tracks going for the short ski from parking lot to 8 and then back. It was a magical scenery day.
