ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 0″ in 48 hours and 2″ in the last 7 days. High of 63°, low of 26°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: The 1A west side of Ajax is skiing very nicely as of 10:30am or so. Once the sun bakes the snow for a few hours, things get nice and corny up on the hill! Be sure to wear sunscreen, and you can probably ditch the coat for a few runs. It’s warm!
