Make the Most of Your Aspen Ski Season
Every year new technology comes out in the ski arena, some things make a big difference in how we interact with the mountains and others maybe not so much.
This year Aspen Skiing Company has come out with a new version or their own app and we really think it will be a game changer in how you ski.
One of new features we think is going to be a huge hit amongst everyone is the Year Over Year Bowl Lap Tracking. Anyone who knows The Power of Four well, (the nickname for the collection of the four mountains that make us the Aspen Skiing Company; Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass and Buttermilk) knows that some of the best skiing that can be found, after of course Aspen’s legendary Mine Dumps and Bell Mountain, is Highlands Bowl. Facing north and topping out at 12,000 feet the snow up there is always light and fluffy, and being hike to exclusive terrain it never gets tracked out. And “The Bowl” always seems to get twice the other amount of snow in comparison to what the other mountains all report, this is often due to wind loading but maybe also thanks to mother nature wanting to reward skiers who make the tough hike. The hike is tough, make no mistake about it, carrying your skis and walking in knee deep steps, up at that altitude is no joke. This is why so many locals and visitors alike wear the number of bowl laps they get in on a given season or ski trip like a badge of honor. Now you can back those claims up when you get back home with this new feature.
Maybe your more the kind of skier that just likes to go fast and get in as many runs and vertical feet as possible in a day, the app can track that too. You will know exactly how many feet you skied on any given day, week or season with this GPS based feature.
Going for your 100 Day Pin, no more needing to ask the lefties when you enter the terminal, this app keeps track of that too, so you know exactly where you stand on any day of the season.
One of the things that is going to make an immediate difference in your day to day skiing experience is the Interactive On-Mountain Mapping, whether you are looking for your next ski run, the right lunch spot, or maybe just the restaurant, the app know where you are and can get you there the fastest. No more wasting time or getting lost, let the app do the work and guide you in.
When it comes to conditions the baby has ti all covered, with stats for every mountain you get weather and snow reports, lifts status and grooming reports and even mountain cams so you can see for yourself. Wondering whether the poma is open to get to The Cirque at Snowmass, just check your app. Looking for the noon groomer to get warmed back up after lunch, check your app! With these kind of updated condition reports the app can even guide you into the best choice for your Aspen ski rentals.
It keeps giving, once the day is done, there is still a nighttime lifes worth of things to do in Aspen and Snowmass. You also have a complete activities and events calendar at your fingertips so you always know where the action is. As you can see, in this case, technology really is going to make a difference in how you experience all that this wonderful mountain town has to offer. While you are here stop in to the Aspen ski shop and we can show you how to make this thing work the best for you.
