Aspen Square Daily News
Up to 8 inches of new snow came to the mountains of Aspen in the last 24 hours. Friday started with a mix of clouds and sun breaks early, with more snow expected later in the day. Sking condtions are just the best. 98% of Aspen Mountain trails are open now, and there is still lots of powder to be found. More snow is expected Friday night and into the weekend. Amazing sking -- and you should be here!
Aspen's Sardy House giant tree lighting ceremony last week is the unofficial start to Aspen's Christmas Holiday Season, and many locals were on hand to celebrate. It was a grand event. The lights change colors every few minutes, and it is something to see. The tree is a GIANT Colorado Blue Spruce. (SKICO, Dan Beyer)
