After a busy day on the slopes, tonight's film at the Wheeler Opera House, "Battle for the Elephants," will offer some exercise for your mind. This free screening of the acclaimed National Geographic documentary explores the on-going extinction crisis threatening Africa's elephants. A reception at 6pm will be followed by the screening at 6:45pm. Stay for a thought-provoking panel discussion with the filmmakers and several conservation specialists after the screening.

After a balmy day yesterday, strong winds blew in some more snow overnight, and once the skies clear towards evening as expected, we'll have another addition to our great snowpack. In the last 7 days our mountains have received between 8" in Snowmass to 12" at Aspen Highlands. 100% of terrain is open on all of our mountains, offering our spring break skiers and riders super conditions. With longer days and warmer temperatures, there really isn't a better time to get away for another ski vacation.
