Wow! What a trip! I had so much fun skiing the slopes of Aspen, Colorado. I don't know if many of you heard about the bomb threats that occurred on New Years Eve but because of the threats the fireworks were postponed to New Years Day! This worked out well for us because we arrived in Aspen on New Years Day! Below is one of the pictures from those amazing fireworks!
So every day we would get up around 7:30 and get ready to hit the slopes whether that be Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, or Highlands. All of the places that we went to were within a half hour of Aspen. So the lifts opened at 9:00am and closed at 3:30pm and once we were done skiing we would walk around downtown and look at all of the things that were extremely over priced. Below is a picture of our group downtown under all of the amazing lights on the trees.
From left to right: Steve, Julie, Kevin, Chris, Jacob, Kyle, Edwardo, and I.

The picture below was taken from the top of Aspen mountain. The view up there takes your breath away. There was also a lodge on the top of the mountain that we could warm up or eat in. The food was amazingly good! Delicious!

Hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them! God is amazing!
