This is a great mountain to spend at least a day at when skiing in Aspen. Usually not as crowded as the other mountains, trails are really good and challenging.This Mountain is not for Beginners.

If you want the glitz and glamor, this ain't the spot for you. If you just want good, raw, unadulterated skiing, then the Highlands have your name on them!!
