Highland Bowl is OPEN! on opening day for Aspen Highlands & Buttermilk

Two brothers showed up to the party today in epic condition.  Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk joined their other siblings (Snowmass & Aspen Mountain) in opening their doors for the 2010 ski season.

This was not your average opening day.  Conditions were epic.  Buttermilk, site of the ESPN Winter X Games) opened with all lifts in operation.  Aspen Highlands even had parts of (the epic, awesome, why am I not there right now?) Highland Bowl open (photo above by Daniel Bayer).  To all those making tracks in Highland Bowl today, I hope you feel our ski jealousy.

More snow is on the way.  It’s expected to be puking snow tonight through Monday.  Game on, friends.
