I have been surprised about complaints concerning crowded conditions on the slopes this winter. My reaction this season is “where is everybody”? I have skied 28 times according to my Aspen App. 19 at Highlands, seven at Buttermilk and two at Snowmass and have mostly had the slopes to myself since I like to ski where others are not.

The excellence of the Aspen Ski Company’s product is an expensive one to deliver. I applaud and thank them for the experience while I continue to pursue empty slopes and the absence of lift lines.
