Visiting cities around the world is a lot of fun, but nothing beats getting outdoors and experiencing nature in its variable forms, particularly when that involves outdoor adventures.
So when the team over at Cotswold Outdoor sent me on a mission to capture my outdoor adventures in their gear, how could I refuse!? Plus, I consider online shopping to be a personal talent of sorts.
So I went over to the website and picked out a few ski necessities:
Gloves by The North Face
In under a few minutes I had all that I needed to hit the slopes in Aspen, Colorado.
Skiing in Aspen
Whilst in Aspen I stayed at Snowmass, which was a perfect stomping ground for a budding beginner.
On one of the days during my trip, I joined a group of skiers on top of Ajax mountain to try new terrain. Rookie error! As it turns out the terrain here was not entirely appropriate for a beginner, so I ended up taking near enough to the entire day to get down. But alas, I can say I have skied Ajax Mountain!
The Aspen Highlands are another popular spot for skiers in Aspen, however again are not made for beginners. If you’re just starting out on the slopes like me (I first learned to ski last year in Switzerland), then I would highly recommend sticking to Snowmass for the first few days.
