On The Hill: After a much needed storm, blue skies and powder await the Tuesday rider

VIDEO: Three strong days of soft snow have left Aspen Snowmass with a healthy coat of freshies. With blue skies prevailing this morning, the Tuesday skier is in line for nearly perfect conditions on the ski area. But as we see, conditions in the backcountry are dangerous, so please use caution.
