It's May Day in Aspen, and with typical contrariness, we've received 6" of fresh snow! The weather is expected to see saw a bit over the next few days before returning to spring. Our flowers are poking bravely through the snow, so we know they'll be fine! This is the view, from Monarch Street at 7:45 this morning, facing Aspen Mountain!
With nearly 90% of Aspen Highlands' terrain still available for skiers and boarders and gorgeous sunny skies predicted all weekend, you should jump in your car and come on up to Aspen today and tomorrow! Skico has reopened 922 acres and about 100 of the trails for this extra weekend and has announced plans for drink specials and live music at the Merry-Go-Round today and tomorrow. It's going to be a LOT of fun!
