Aspen Square Daily News
The Wheeler Opera House is holding a "fire sale" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the fires of 1912 which nearly destroyed the building. On November 21 at 12:19 pm the doors will close for 19 minutes and 12 seconds. If you're inside the building during that time, you can purchase tickets for eight of the upcoming winter events, including Shawn Colvin and the Temptations, for $10 off the regular price!

The National Weather Service was right on in their most recent forecast of a winter weather advisory! We just read a Tweet from the top of Elk Camp in Snowmass - they reported 8" of new snow! We can't see Red Mountain from the lobby windows today, which is a sure sign that the clouds are hanging low over our town!
The Colorado Department of Transportation has announced that Independence Pass will be closed for the winter season beginning today, November 9, at 1pm. All visitors to Aspen Square who plan to drive into town should plan to take the route to Aspen via I-70 through Glenwood Springs.
