Snow Descending!

Aspen woke up to a chilly morning with heavy clouds and new snow on the peaks. Now, just an hour later, the skies are parting on the way to 50 degrees today, and look at our view (you could see it from Aspen Square if you were here). The snow has descended almost all the way down the slope to the base of Aspen Mountain. Time to purchase your ski pass and make a reservation for early season skiing?
