Greg had been planting the seed of Aspen all week. At the beginning of the week, we told him we weren't getting in the car to drive over 2.5 hours one-way to ski. Somehow, by Thursday, after our rest day on Wednesday, we relented. We planned to leave by 7am, and were on the road at 7:30am. By the time we figured out where to park, rode the shuttle to the base, and purchased tickets, we were getting in the Gondola line by 10:40am. Boy was it warm at the bottom of the mountain. We think this might be one of the latest ski starts we can think of.
Rode the Gondola to the top, and had real nice spring ski conditions all day. We skied until 4pm. On our last ride up, we stopped into the bar up top for a drink. They had closed at 3:30pm. Whaat?? No last drink before last run down?
