On The Hill: In Seach of Ullr at Highlands

VIDEO: On the Hill goes to Highlands in search of Ullr. What we find is that the mountain has good snow coverage and we don’t have to share it with a lot of people on the weekday.

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

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 1″ in 48 hours and 4″ in the last 7 days. High of 39°, low of 22°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Aspen Highlands is well groomed, soft, and skiing great. Like the other three mountains in our area, you will find bare patches poking through some steep areas. High traffic areas where the surface has been buffed out, such as the last few hundred yards between you and the base of Highlands as you make your way to the bottom, can be a little tricky to navigate. Snowing today and I’ve heard anything from 0-4 inches expected. If you know a spot where wind loading occurs, you might go investigate and see what Mother Nature done brung ye!

LIFT LINE STATUS: Moving smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy!
