Aspen official report: 1 fresh inch overnight.

Aspen Times field report: A light dusting of snow overnight has Snowmass skiing nice and soft Sunday morning. Snowmass has a decent base, but until the next significant storm beware of a few rocks here and there starting to poke out of the steep stuff. There are crowds down at the base, as is to be expected on the holiday weekend. Good bet is to get up early and beat the crowds up the mountains and then do laps up top whenever possible.

Liftline status: Not so bad early, but expected to deteriorate as the morning progresses.

Breakdown: We lapped the Elk Camp, Burn, and High Alpine lifts this morning and all three of those sides of the mountain are skiing really nice and soft. Keep an eye out for gapers though…tis the season!

Snowcast: There is actually an inch or two predicted in the next 48 hours, then clear for a few days. NOAA is tracking a storm around Januray 6.
