Our second big snow storm of the early winter came to Aspen early this week, with nearly a foot of fresh snow recorded on Aspen Mountain. Several inches fell here in town, and with cold temperatures it is sticking around. Ski and snowboard season opens in Aspen in just three weeks, with lifts starting up on Thanksgiving Day.
