Hike the Highlands Bowl - Scott Dunn Suggests
Aspen, United States of America
For the Big Skiers and Adventure seekers we recommend hiking the Highlands bowl, this is the way the locals ski and they absolutely love to share their experience with guests.
This is the ultimate Aspen adventure. At the top of highlands after getting a lift up, you get into a piste basher and it takes you up the mountain a little further. From there you strap on your skies and hike about 30-40 minutes to the top. The views are sensational along your hike and at the top the feeling of elation is unrivalled. You then have a choice of multiple routes down, from trees runs to big open slopes. All are un bashed and it’s the best place to get fresh off-piste tracks. Definitely worth a try - not for the faint hearted though.
