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.
Snowcast: According to NOAA.com, showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 2pm, then scattered showers and thunderstorms after 2pm. Cloudy, with a high near 54. West wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.
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%.
Sunday: A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms between 1pm and 5pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 59. Light and variable wind becoming north northwest 5 to 10 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 32. Calm wind becoming southeast around 5 mph after midnight.
