Skiing and boarding conditions were already good, but they're going to get even better in the next few days. Our latest winter storm warning has been extended through dinner time on Monday. If all goes as predicted, we'll be adding up to 20" of fresh powder by the time the storm blows out of the Roaring Fork Valley. Meanwhile, Aspen Highlands has already received 5" in the last 24 hours. To see how it looks today, check out our Roundshot link in the Aspen Webcams section of our website.
Beginning tomorrow, February 7, Snowmass will host a weekly Big Air Friday competition on upper Fanny Hill. Athletes will showcase their biggest tricks as they launch themselves off the 40-foot jump. The competition begins at 2pm each week through March. Come cheer on these thrilling competitors. For details, visit www.aspensnowmass.com.
When we take a break from skiing and boarding, Aspen offers plenty of off-slope activity, especially for lovers of cultural events. This Thursday, February 6, the Aspen Music Festival is presenting another in its series of video presentations, The Met: Live in HD. This week's showing at 5:30pm is of the satirical opera "The Nose" by Shostakovich. These performances give us a chance to see some of the most sought-after productions in New York, without leaving the comfort of our little town. For details visit www.wheeleroperahouse.com.
