Highland's Bowl - The Best Skiing in North America

The forty minute hike on the ridge up to Highland's Bowl, is worth the unbeatable ski down. With steep, open terrain and the best snow, nothing beats a run in the Bowl. Now, boasting over 2,400 feet of vertical, three runs on the bowl and you can call it an amazing ski day. And with the new Deep Temerity lift, you can ski out on a short, wide catwalk and take a quick lift back up to the top and begin hiking all over again. The Highland's Bowl Ridge: highlands.jpg

Downhill Racing in Aspen a Real Thrill

I'm back in the saddle in alpine ski racing after being side-lined for nearly six years after blowing my knee out in the '99 town downhill. Over the past ten days, I competed in three Super-G's races, ran a total of ten downhill training runs, and three downhill races between the Aspen Town Downhill and the Rocky Mountain Masters. Finally was able to get going really fast last weekend as I was able to hang within five seconds of last year's Master's Downhill Champion as well as former Canadian and U.S. Ski Team members on a course that was nearly a minute and a half long.
