A couple inches of mid-week snow softened up Snowmass quite nicely. Weather has remained mild and the skiing has been great.
10 inches of snow fell overnight at Snowmass and more snow is in the forecast! It appears as though the jet stream that had been pushing storms south of Aspen has eased off and storms are expected to continue to hit the area over the next few weeks. The skiing is going to be phenomenal!
Amidst the XGames excitement coming to town, Jazz Aspen Snowmass offers some dynamite entertainment and something a little different, this time of year. JAS Downstairs at the Little Nell presents Kim Nalley Singing Billie Holiday. Ms. Nalley's voice spans 3 1/2 octaves, making for an unparalleled rendition of Lady Day. Revel in the magic, as the music of Billie Holiday to life. Two shows each night, 1/29-1/30; for more info, www.jazzaspen.org.
The continued mild temperatures and sun poking out in between snow flurries made for some great cruising over at Snowmass. While skiing with an out-of-town cousin, I marveled at just how well the snow has been holding up. Coverage is still impressive and it is easy to hold an edge.
With snow in the forecast (snow is expected continuously for the next two weeks), there is going to be GREAT skiing and riding in the coming days! I can't wait!
