On The Hill: A quiet Friday on the hill preceeds a wild closing weekend at Snowmass and Highlands

VIDEO: Nary a soul is up on Aspen Mountain this morning on what is really a beautiful day to ski. Could it be that everyone is saving themselves for the wild closing weekend events at Snowmass and Highlands?

On the Hill is brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 3″ in 48 hours and 3″ in the last 7 days. High of 56°, low of 24°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: It is really a beautiful spring day up on Ajax. The corduroy is fantastic, even in mid-April. Probably smart to stay on the main trails as there is melt-off happening everywhere but. It is warm, so you probably don’t need a mid-layer base – and sunny, so think about changing out to your dark lenses if you have the option on your goggles.

LIFT LINE STATUS: Walk right up and grab a red gondy car all to yourself!

LISTENING TO: The Grateful Dead “The Other One” (5-1-77)
