Aspen Times field report: Despite the relative sparcity of new snow, Aspen Mountain is skiing very nicely. With nary a skier in sight, soft, chalky corduroy turns await, with room to really style it out and lay down some beautiful arcs today. It doesn’t hurt at all that you’ve got an entire mountain to yourself under a bright blue sky today!
