Aspen Square Daily News
While we wait for the next storm system to arrive Friday afternoon, we're taking the evening off for a good cause. Bumps Restaurant, at the base of Buttermilk, is hosting the Empty Bowls Dinner tonight from 5 to 7pm, benefiting local non-profit Lift Up. Students from Aspen's Middle, Community and Country Day schools have created hundreds of ceramic bowls which will be sold during the fundraiser. A simple dinner of soup, bread and dessert will be offered by local restaurants. It's a great way to fill up and fill a needy person at the same time. For details call (970) 429-1900.

Yes, it's the right thing to do. More snow is ahead...
Today's Power of 4 Ski Mountaineering race tests the mettle of some of the most fit people in the Roaring Fork Valley. Two-person teams will ski, hike or skin up all four mountains, including summiting Highlands Bowl, Aspen Mountain, Snowmass and Buttermilk in a single day. The race encompasses 12,000 vertical gain over 25 miles. All we can say is "wow"!
