On The Hill: Riding with Sasquatch


VIDEO: It’s not a wookie. It’s not a gorilla or a monkey either. It’s Sasquatch! And we’re stoked because Cracker is coming to Aspen! Free concert at the base of Ajax, 6pm this Saturday, Feb. 14th!

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, 0″ in 48 hours and 0″ in the last 7 days. High of 45°, low of 21°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: I can see some kind of weather event off in the distance from the top of Ajax. I’m generally finding that conditions are good up top of most mountains, where the temps are cooler. As the day warms up, the conditions change depending on aspect and elevation, becoming slightly slushy and Spring-like towards the bottom of the mountain, especially in the afternoon. Adjust your skiing accordingly!

LIFT LINE STATUS: Silver Queen Gondola saw a number of folks this morning, but ASC staff kept things moving smoothly.
