On The Hill: Clear blue skies and balmy skiing on Aspen Mountain
VIDEO: With a high pressure ridge hovering above the West Elks, the bright blue skies that are a hallmark of Aspen skiing emerged from weeks of cloud cover, bringing warm temperatures with them. Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson takes a fast run from Peanut Butter Ridge down to Bonnies amidst downright balmy, soft, pleasant conditions.

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 0″ in 48 hours and 4″ in the last 7 days. High of 39°, low of 18°.
ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: The mountain is skiing beautifully today. The warm temps seem to have softened up the hill in the right places. There are still some pebbles exposed here and there, so ski with care as not everything is 100% covered, but then again, is it ever? The corduroy from North American all the way down to town was outstanding.
LIFT LINE STATUS: Blink and on the lift you go!
