The end (of the season) is near!

This past weekend was full of crazy end of the season adventures! My cousin, Tyson moved to Aspen to work with Trevor & Bryant at Regan Construction. On Saturday we made plans to join a group of our friends for lunch on Highlands Mountain. We decided to introduce Ty to the Aspen lifestyle as soon as we possibly could! We woke up early on Saturday and got to Highlands in time to get first tracks on our top to bottom warm up run. It was gorgeous! With one run under our belts, we headed out to hike the Highlands Bowl, a 45 minute hike along the ridge of a mountain (see picture). The top of the Bowl is 12,392ft above sea level. He rocked the hike!

The bowl hadn't recieved new snow in 4 days and we still managed to find and incredible open powder field in the Northwoods! YEEEE HAHHHHH! It was a blast!

By the time we made it back up the lift to the top of the mountain, we had to head to Cloud 9 for lunch. We met 8 of our friends and wined and dined for the rest of the afternoon. It was a perfect day to say goodbye to our favorite ski hill for the season.

That evening we went to the Hickory House for the Final 4. It was a sad showing for NC, but in the end I think the best 2 teams were matched up for the final game.

Sunday, Emily, David, Bryant and I skinned up Snowmass Mountain to the Wine Cabin for the 1st annual Regan Construction Spring into busy season party. Despite gloomy weather, it was a fun party. There is never a dull moment when that crew is together!

All in a weekend living in Aspen...Man I love it here!
