Description

Aspen is the first line due west of Lift Line (Lower T-Bar).

From the warming hut: Head west from the sledding area, along the south side of Hidden Valley Creek, for about 200 yards. At the intersection of the "Columbine" and "Aspen" is a clearing in the trees. A wide open clearing to your left (south) marks the bottom of Aspen.

From the top of Lift Line: head skier's left (west) through a relatively narrow clearing in the trees. The line widens as you near the bottom.
