Aspen Square Daily News
It's a beautifully mild spring day in Aspen - perfect weather for the annual Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls. Teams of two will be challenging their own personal limits as they hike up and ski down the bowls at Aspen Highlands. Participants can take any route they choose on the course, but they must include Highland Bowl in the 4.5-hour event. The Battle in the Bowls is part of the 13th annual Spring Jam celebration.
The corner of Galena and Cooper Avenue is the place to be this weekend, when the annual Core Party busts loose in Aspen. As the Aspen Times said this morning, we'll be enjoying a "double shot of music" at 8pm on Friday and Saturday nights. MarchFourth Marching Band brings its brass band music and stilt-walking theatrics on Friday, and Saturday will feature the indie-rock band Grouplove. Celebrate spring the Core Party way!
With up to 18 inches of new snow reported on the mountains of Aspen over the past seven days, skiing conditions are just the best. After a weekend that saw the return of winter weather and very cold temperatures, and more snow, sunshine and warmer temps are with us this week. What a GREAT time to be here! The season's end is in sight, the middle of April, and until then skiing and boarding will be excellent. Ask us about great spring rates at Aspen Square. Give us a call, and enjoy a fun spring visit!
