Aspen official report: 2″ of new snow overnight, 3″ in the past 48 hours, and 7″ in the past week. Cloudy, light snow, high 33, low of 12 degrees, NW wind 5-15mph.
Aspen Times field report: Those few inches of powder ever day are starting to add up, and Ajax is skiing very soft and nicely, especially when you consider that official opening day isn’t until Thursday!
Light lift lines make getting up Aspen Mountain a breeze this morning, but be sure to wear the extra layer, clear goggles, and maybe bring the facemask as it is chilly and a light snow makes visibility challenging.
Liftline status: Come on, man. It’s Tuesday! Skate on through!
