We headed to Aspen early in the morning. It was our attempt to see some wildlife. Well the scenery was beautiful but we didn't see any wildlife.

After a few practice runs we then caught the chairlift up to Spruce Saddle Lodge. There were no mishaps on the chairlifts this time! We stopped for a hot chocolate before catching another chairlift up to the top of the mountain. We then skied down the mountain. Visibility on the mountain was very poor and it was snowing hard.
