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!
If you're lucky enough to be in Aspen this weekend, the Aspen Skiing Company is offering everyone an unexpected treat - free gondola rides. On Saturday and Sunday, you can ride the gondola for free to the top of Aspen Mountain between the hours of 10am and 4pm. With fall colors peaking and fresh snow on the mountains surrounding Aspen, it will be a magnificent site!
