Aspen is a winter town and we're excitedly gazing at the sky (and the weather radar) today. With a 90% chance of snow in the forecast for today, tonight and tomorrow, we're looking forward to a predicted addition of up to 10" of fresh snow by dinner time tomorrow. And with another storm coming on its heels this weekend, you know conditions will be fantastic. Sounds like a powder weekend to us!
Aspen Santa Fe Ballet brings its mix of great repertoire and outstanding athleticism to the Aspen District Theater tonight and tomorrow at 7:30pm.
