Aspen Square Daily News
For people who like to keep track of snowfall statistics, you'll be delighted to know that we had a nice little storm last night that ushered in some significant new snow on our mountains. Aspen received 6", Aspen Highlands recorded 7", Buttermilk scored 4" and Snowmass was the big winner with 9" of snow. Keep it coming!
While we wait for the next snowstorm to arrive, there are plenty of fun events in Aspen this week. If you're in the mood for some chuckles, the return of the Aspen Laff Festival, February 20-22, may be just what you're looking for. Now in its fourth year, the Laff Festival brings up-and-coming stand-up comedians to the Wheeler Opera House stage. Included this year are "Short Snorts" apres ski presentations. For ticket information you can call the Wheeler Box Office at 970-920-5770, or visit www.aspenshowtix.com.
One of our favorite mid-winter events, the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club (AVSC) Nordic Bonfire Dinner, is tomorrow night, February 15 from 6-8pm. Cross-country ski or snowshoe on 1.5 miles of candlelit trails on the Aspen Golf Course, while enjoying food stops with hors d'oeuvres, soups and desserts from some of Aspen's best restaurants. This fun event benefits the AVSC's nordic programs. For details, visit www.teamavsc.org.
