Plenty of flexible young ladies will be visiting Aspen this weekend as we host the Aspen Gymnastics Invitational Meet through Sunday. More than 250 girls will compete in five sessions of compulsory level 3-5 gymnastics in the Red Brick Gym. Saturday sessions are at 9am, 1pm and 5pm; Sunday events begin at 9am.
Even as our aspen trees have reached their peak, Aspen and surrounding areas are under a winter storm warning until 9pm Friday night. As always, it's an exciting time to be here as we prepare for the arrival of (temporary) winter! Four to eight inches are predicted below 9,000 feet, so that would be Aspen! Stay tuned.
After a week that saw cold temperatures and snowfall come to Aspen, the forecast for most of this week returns to classic October weather. Bright sun and deep blue skies will hold sway until later in the week - perfect to take in the fall colors on the surrounding peaks. Here's a recent photo from Owl Creek Road - the back road to Snowmass. It's just a taste of fall beauty surrounding us right now!
