As if the 1,500 feet of up to 45-degree treeless chutes and pine glades in Aspen's Highland Bowl (hike-to terrain only) weren't enough to max out your lung capacity and singe your quads, this winter you'll have 1,000 more feet of expert-only vertical. In seven minutes, the new Deep Temerity triple chair rockets you 1,700 feet to the top of Loge Peak, where 180 new acres of steep snow alleys, wide aspen groves, and pine forests await your turns. The lift also eliminates the ten-minute Grand Traverse cat track out from the base of Highland Bowl, so you can exploit every penny's worth of that precious $78 lift ticket. 800-525-6200, www.aspensnowmass.com
