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!
This weekend, Basalt's Gold Medal trout streams will get a workout when the town hosts the US National Fly Fishing Championships. Twelve teams of five members each will compete on five different venues. Each team will be provided with the same boats and gear to level the playing field. Winners will be determined by the number and cumulative length of the fish they catch, although the event is catch-and-release.
