Aspen Square Daily News
With the return of daylight savings time, our ski days are getting much longer, just in time for the first weekend of Bud Light Spring Jam 2014 beginning tomorrow. This year's Spring Jam takes place over the next two weekends, with on-mountain events like Bud Light Big Air Fridays on Fanny Hill in Snowmass, KickAspen Big Air Saturday night on Aspen Mountain. And the Gondola Plaza will rock tomorrow afternoon, March 14, with performances by Cash'd Out and One Ton Pig at 3pm. If you're in the area, come join in the fun!

We have a favorite tradition in Aspen - the 6" rule. Basically, if it snows 6" everyone gets out on the slopes before going to work. Well, we called it yesterday - but we didn't just get 6", we got 12! Snowmass and Highlands each received 11" and little Buttermilk didn't do too badly either, with 7" of fresh powder. Now the skies have cleared and it's a perfect day for spring skiing. Here's a shot of the Gondola Plaza this morning from Aspen Square.
The weather report calls for 1-3" of new snow today, but since it's been snowing steadily all morning, we should shoot past that prediction in about another hour! Check out our webcams or the link to the SkiCo's Roundshot for the latest look at the weather here in Aspen and Snowmass. In the meantime, the attached picture says it all!
