Aspen Square Daily News
Don't forget the sun screen! We are into spring skiing on the mountains of Aspen with great conditions on the slopes and no lift lines. There will be sunny days ahead, and there will certainly be smiles and red faces around the hotel this week. More snow will come our way at week's end. no question, skiing will be excellent over the days ahead. Wow -- more fun skiing and boarding -- and keep the sun screen handy!
AFter being closed for four days, the Colorado Highway Dept got the rock slide cleared and I-70 reopened with one lane available in each direction. Last week saw a shower of huge rocks and boulders came down on the elevated portions of I-70 through Glenwood Canyon. Severe damage to the highway was severe, and the highway was closed in both directions for several days while clean-up efforts and repairs continued. Traffic was rerouted up through Steamboat Springs and Craig, adding about 3 hours to the Denver to Aspen drive. The Eagle Airport was also on the other side of the road closure.
Monday and Monday night brought up to 7 inches of new snowfall to the mountains of Aspen, and more came Tuesday night. Now sunny skies greeted skiers for Wednesday. We expect more new snow and more terrific skiing and snowboarding later in the week. March is always a month of great snowfall, and we will get more. Bring it on!
Spring skiing is just ahead, and we will be ready with excellent slope conditions, and special rates on our lodging and lift packages. Come join your friends at Aspen Square and have fun!
