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.
