After yesterday's major storm, Aspen Mountain is sporting 14" of beautiful new powder and the skies are a deep, Colorado blue. The temperatures are very cold for the next few days - the better to hold the snow in place for your visit? Here's a look at our courtyard at about 10am this morning.
A major snowstorm dropped up to 18 inches of new snow on the mountains of Aspen over the past days, and conditions are just the best. Wednesday was an epic Powder Day, and the skiing was absolutely amazing. More snow is expected for another day, then blue skies will return for more terrific skiing and snowboarding.
