Aspen Square Daily News
We've been anticipating more snow and this afternoon a powerful storm system has arrived! Predictions call for a foot or more of fresh snow by tomorrow morning. Conditions are going to be great for the start of the Winter X Games which begin Thursday.
The mountains of Aspen recorded from 12 to 14 inches of new snow on Monday and Monday night, and then the sun came out for Tuesday's skiers and snowboarders. What a Grand Powder Day! Temperatures are remaining cold, so the snow is light and fluffy -- just what we want it to be. Tuesday will be mostly sunny, and more of the same expected on Wednesday, then more snow returns. Conditions are terrific. What a great time to be skiing and boarding the four mountains of Aspen!
