On The Hill: Ski right down into town on the Nell

VIDEO: With temperatures creeping back into double digits on the mountain, and the holidays officially in our rear view mirror, Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson takes a run down the Little Nell run to experience the sheer thrill of skiing right into the heart of the world’s greatest ski town.

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 10″ in the last 7 days. High of 27°, low of 12°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: It feels noticibly warmer today on the mountain, and the snow reflects that change in temperature as it gets a little slicker down Aspen Mountain than it has been of recent chalky past. Once again there is hardly anyone on the hill this morning, which means it is a great day to get out the carvers and lay some sweeping turns down.

LIFT LINE STATUS: 1A is still offline. The Bell chair is swinging again today. All over the mountain you can ski right up and jump on a lift.

LISTENING TO: Rich Eisen’s touching eulogy of Stuart Scott.
