Aspen Times field report: Ullr has already blessed this fresh ski season with an early opening, and now his majesty has seen fit to spackle Aspen with a light, fluffy powder coat of 4″ overnight. Rejoice! It’s almost a powder day, and tomorrow will likely be one (for those Monday workers trying to figure out if their cough is worsening!) As George Harrison once sang, we are “stuck up in this cloud” today, as low clouds have socked Ajax in nicely. Bring the clear goggles, last years skis and a third layer.
Liftline status: Moving nicely.
