We're happy to report that the weekend storms that were predicted paid off handsomely for our mountains. As of today, Aspen Mountain received a total of 16" in the last week and 7" in the past 48 hours. Snowmass received 19" and Highlands is boasting 18" of new snow. That bodes well for the opening of Highlands and Buttermilk next Saturday, December 18. Meanwhile, it appears that Mother Nature may have more up her sleeve this week, so stay turned.
