On The Hill: Ski away the Broncos blues
VIDEO: Some Monday’s are harder than others, especially when they fall in the postseason. With most of Broncos Country in mourning this morning, Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson takes a run down Copper on Aspen Mountain to sample the dusting of new snow and let the clean, fresh Rocky Mountain air cleanse his Broncos Blues.

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 4″ in the past 24 hours, 4″ in 48 hours and 5″ in the last 7 days. High of 36°, low of 19°.
ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: The Ski Company is reporting 4 inches overnight, most likely in wind-blown areas. Feels more like an inch or two, but it truly did freshen up the mountain and soften things up nicely. It feels pretty warm. Good morning for a shell, though it should snow later so the extra layer could come in handy if you are skiing all day. Visibility is nice and clear as of 10am.
LIFT LINE STATUS: No worries, mate! Step right up!
