Snowmass, Aspen (Ajax) Mountain, Highlands, and Buttermilk
If you love to ski, this is your chance to experience America's winter Mecca: Aspen/Snowmass. There are four mountains owned by the ski Company, each with its distinct flavor. The huge Snowmass Mountain (3500(+) acres) has 90 trails and 23 lifts with consistently excellent Colorado powder. Whether you like the steep stuff, powder, bumps, trees or wide-open cruisers, there are plentiful runs to satisfy the whims and skills of every type of skier.
As your guide:
*I will key-in on exactly what you desire in skiing and find it for you.
*I know these 4 mountains with precision and your skiing time will be maximized. No searching (and wasting precious skiing time) for the right run and conditions
*I will share stories on the regional geology and colorful local history.
*As a former Mountain Ambassador at Snowmass I know the mountain and services provided.
*I will provide (when asked!) skiing tips and pointers to better your skiing technique. I use the PMTS method created and taught by Harald Harb.
The day of the skiing we will meet at a pre-designated mountain at a planned meeting spot and time. At that point we will chat as to what you might like to ski. Lift choices are easy. SKI! Lifts rides are a great place to chat and find out about each other. It is the sharing of skiing with new and old friends that makes it all the more special. Depending upon the size of the group and abilities we will find just the right places for you on whatever mountain we are on. Lunch and breaks will evolve naturally. Unfortunately, the ski day will end and then it will be goodbye. I am available for multiple days of guiding at the 4 different mountains.

Public Transportation in the Aspen valley is quick, free, good, and easy on the RFTA bus system. In addition, there is a Snowmass Village bus system for those not staying slopeside.

Like skiing with a good friend-not a guide! Best day of skiing we had all week. It was wonderful to ski with someone who knows the mountain inside and out. Definitely recommend taking Peter out!
