2015 Top Ski Towns: Aspen, Colorado

Ski bums of all ages may be working three jobs to pay their way in this pricey resort town, but on a powder morning, you’ll find them in the Aspen gondola line.

Aspen. It’s one of the most riffed-on ski towns out there. From Aspen Extreme to Dumb and Dumber, Us Weekly to The New York Times, the widespread image of Aspen is a glitzy celebrity playground, where the billionaires pushed out the millionaires and where no regular Joe could possibly afford to live.

How to Ski Vail’s Sun Down Bowl

Take a few spins in one of Vail’s most intimidating Back Bowls.

Terrain » Don’t expect any groomed terrain; Sun Down Bowl is an advanced skier’s stomping ground. While most of the bowl is wide open, the west side serves up fun trees and cliff drops. There are also some gullies separating trails. Warning: They look far shallower than they actually are, so be careful trying to cross them. You might end up bib-deep in powder.
