On The Hill: Don’t give up on ski season quite yet

DCIM\194GOPRO

VIDEO: Aspen received a few inches of fresh overnight, which is a nice blanket atop the hard crust of the early morning spring snow. And, with hardly anyone on the hill this morning, the skiing is actually pretty darn good considering we are four days from the end of the season!

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

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 3″ in the past 24 hours, 3″ in 48 hours and 7″ in the last 7 days. High of 52°, low of 22°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Snow was still falling very lightly this morning, with variable visibility. Even with new snow it is fairly warm, especially when compared to the depth of winter. A face mask is advisable, but you can ditch the midlayer puffy and just go with a shell and thermal.

LIFT LINE STATUS: More lifties than customers.
