Our weather patterns are certainly pointing toward winter, with another dusting of snowfall and colder temps this week. There are still yellow leaves on the Aspen trees up on the slopes, but we have snow on the slopes as well. We are still in the fall season but it feels like winter is on the way. We are anticipating a grand winter with lots of snow, of course! It's time to plan your Aspen Square visit and great skiing and snowboarding on the mountains of Aspen! Be ready for fun....
