Aspen official report: 0″ of new snow overnight, 0″ in the past 48 hours, and 0″ in the past week.
Aspen Times field report: Aspen Mountain is still skiing incredibly well, so long as you stay off of the less groomed terrain. The “snirt” (dirty snow) that we got a few weeks ago has pretty well rotted out most of the steeper snow, but the areas that get groomed regularly are really skiing nicely still.
Liftline status: Very few humans on the mountain today.

Tonight: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 9pm, then a slight chance of showers between 9pm and 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 32. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
