Aspen 11-4

I'm flying into Aspen on the 4th I'm wondering if it would be possible to get some skiing in. I'm trying to pull something off on Saturday the 5th and would love to find a place that I could get instruction/gear for skiing that day. Am I too early? Will I have to drive a considerable distance from Aspen to make it happen? If so I'll probably try find another outdoor activity to keep us busy. Any ideas?

Too early. Temps have been in the 50 60's range through most of the state. Little moisture or accumulation that can stick around w/ those temps. Plan on mtn Biking. Seems most trails are still in condition. Enjoy. Try Moab at a 4hr drive or Grand Junction/ Fruita for the best and most reliable riding weather.

Loveland ski area

A little over 2 hour drive. 2 runs open.
Better still bring hiking boots. Bus or drive to maroon Bells and hike up
West Maroon Pass.
Rent a mtn bike and ride up Smuggler and down Hunter
No amount of money is worth your free time!

We don't open until Nov. 24. It is still really pretty for hiking & biking like everyone said. It is in the low 30's at night but warms up nicely in the day to like 60. Have fun.
