On The Hill: The pinnacle of winter is upon us
January 27, 2014
Aspen official report: No new snow in the past 10 days.
Aspen Times field report: Somewhat hardpacked and slick in the shadows, especially above the Little Nell.
Liftline status: No liftlines and solo buckets.
Breakdown: With the X Games going off over at Buttermilk today, it is a good bet that you will have the rest of the mountains largely to yourself. The snow is holding up due to cold temps, but we could definitely use some new snow. Hopefully this next week will see a change in this high pressure system we’ve been under for weeks.
Snowcast: NOAA forecasts that there is a chance of snow Monday and again on Wednesday and Thursday, though it looks to be a fairly weak storm.
