In the biggest storm of the season (so far), Aspen Mountain has been blanketed in 24" of fresh snow and it's still snowing. The winter storm warning has been extended until 5am tomorrow and we won't know what our storm totals until then. The buses are packed with skiers and the kids have a snow day. As you can see, staff at Aspen Square are as excited as everyone else is!
