On The Hill: Buttery turns on a warm Wednesday
February 12, 2014
VIDEO: Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson delivers his daily video conditions report almost live from Aspen Mountain.
Aspen official report: 0″ of new snow overnight, 4″ in the past 48 hours, and 21″ in the past week.
Aspen Times field report: The mountain responded very well to the warm snap that followed last weekends moisture-laden snow storms. The snow is nice and soft and very edge-able. Partly sunny, relatively warm conditions this morning mean that you can use the medium-dark goggles and get down with just a parka shelly.
Liftline status: A little busy today, but no more than a one minute wait. I mean, come on! It’s Aspen!
Breakdown: Great day to get those carving boards out again and link some turns! After two weeks on ginormous powder boards, we found it refreshing light to get back on the relatively skinny sticks.
Snowcast: The monster, two-week long storm finally petered out last night. Another wave is expected to move into the area tonight, with a 60% chance of snow overnight, a 50% chance tomorrow and possibly more snow on Sunday. Accumulations are not expected to be significant. Temps will reach the mid-40’s by Saturday.
