Photo Journal – Aspen Mtn Off Piste and Ashcroft Touring
This past week guided trips went out on Richmond Ridge on the backside of Aspen Mountain and also up in the Castle Creek valley above Ashcroft. Safe skiing conditions and good powder could be found in all areas and the Colorado blue skies enhanced the views and vistas. The group skied around 2,200 vertical feet on Richmond Ridge and over 4,000 feet off of Green Mountain above Ashcroft.
