ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 0″ in 48 hours and 2″ in the last 7 days. High of 44°, low of 25°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Aspen Mountain is the lone survivor of the 2014-15 ski season here in the Roaring Fork Valley. Usually this late in the season, you can be skiing beautifully soft, pliable corn slush by noon. But today’s encroaching storm has strong winds and chilly air keeping the entire mountain in race course mode. Be sure to wear your chilly weather spring gear as there is a defiinite nip to the air.
