Description

Eden is a gnarly run at Aspen Highlands, maybe even the gnarliest run at the entire resort.

The gate to this run is in plain sight but is still easily missed.

As you make your way down Broadway, you can find the gate on the left (skiers' left).

You'll have to hike up the side of a cliff/massive rock to reach the main entrance into Eden.

There are a couple of paths through Eden, each of which are ridiculously challenging.

Eden has several tight corridors, small cliff drops, and precipitously pitched trees.

Eden hugs the resort boundary, be careful about ducking the rope due to the technical nature of the zone.

Also be wary of the massive cliff in the middle of the run.

Towards the end, Eden filters onto No Name and the exit catwalk out of Olympic Bowl.

Eden is gnarly and really shouldn't be attempted unless you're very proficient with punishingly steep backcountry-like terrain.
