Aspen official report: 5″ of fresh powder overnight. 17″ has fallen in the past week.

Aspen Times field report: With calf deep snow all over Ajax, today definitely qualifies as a powder day. Patrol is reportedly dropping ropes in the steeper sections today.

Liftline status: Powder hounds are all over this one. Expect short delays, but compared to a week ago lines are pretty calm.

Breakdown: Powder day! Stop what you are doing and go skiing!

Snowcast: This storm is expected to deliver 1-6 inches of fresh powder through Sunday. There is a winter storm warning through 6am Saturday. NOAA is forecasting significant winds on Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures peaking in the mid-20’s.
