Aspen official report: 9″ new snow in the past 24 hours. 33″ of new snow in past 48 hours (!), 37″ of snow in the past week.

Aspen Times field report: Yesterdays 30+” powder day was ridiculous enough, and now, today, there’s another 9″ on top of that and the sun is coming out. EPIC part 2!

Liftline status: Snowmass is jam packed from what we hear. Aspen had gondy lines down the stairs, but not too long of a wait.

Breakdown: The snow very well may be BETTER (see, lighter) than yesterday, and yesterday will go down in the history books as one of the all time great powder days in Aspen history. There is ample thigh deep powder to be had if you get off the beaten path. Be careful though. Avalanche warnings are still in effect. It’s a fairly heavy snow and there is a LOT of it. Visibility is pretty good today, especially compared to yesterdays goggle-crusher.

Snowcast: There’s nothing in NOAA’s forecast for this week.
