Aspen Square Daily News
Our snow was just the best this winter, and skiing was amazing all season long. It was a fun ski and snowboard season. Spring is here now, and sunshine prevails this time of year -- at least most days. Now the weather is mostly delightful but we can always have a spring snowstorm -- like this past Sunday saw. Stay tuned, summer is on the way!
Aspen's regular ski season is closed for the winter, but there was still so much snow up on the slopes on closing day! With all the new snow, Aspen Highlands reopened for two "bonus weekends" at the end of April. There was still time for some final turns. It was quite a season with terrific snow from start to finish, including amazing snow right to the end. What a great ski season this has been!
Up to 15 inches of snow has fallen at Aspen/Snowmass since 2 a.m. Tuesday morning and snow continued through the morning. Now, the skies are blue, the sun is out, it is still cold and skiing is just AMAZING. An Epic day for sure. All four mountains – Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk – received at least a foot, Aspen Mountain had 15 inches as of 9 a.m. and wind-loaded slopes have up to a foot and a half. The coverage is excellent with base depths in the 5-8 foot range.
