Clear Fork Resort's powdery slopes send beginners and experts alike swishing and sliding down carefully calibrated terrain. Tubes give guests the opportunity to run slopes free from the worry of trying to wield poles without initiating duels with on-edge musketeers. For skiers and boarders, a beginner’s area served by two handlebar lifts helps neophytes find their snowlegs on shallow inclines, preventing high-speed wipeouts and accidental velocity-induced time travel. More experienced winter wanderers can catch the quad chair to head down The Bowl—rated more difficult—before moving on to the most difficult stretches of slope. An isolated double chair takes patrons to the resort's highest point to run the more difficult Whitetail or most difficult Black Chute. Though not included in this Groupon, equipment is available on-site for rent or purchase through Aspen Ski and Board Co.
Clear Fork Resort
Surrounded by a semicircle of hills, the main lodge at Clear Fork Resort serves as the access point to miles of alpine and cross-country skiing, ATVing, and snow-tubing trails that populate the surrounding countryside. The downhill skiing trail map contains terrain suitable for every level of skier or snowboarder, with a beginner's area and numerous difficult runs serviced by triple and quad chairlifts. When Old Man Winter hits the snooze button, a fleet of Snow Guns stands ready to bombard the slopes with artificial snow and passive-aggressive taunts skyward. Resort visitors can always check current weather conditions, which are constantly monitored by the resort's snow report.
