On The Hill: Sneaker storm pastes Snowmass with freshies
March 25, 2015
VIDEO: A sneaker storm dumped a good 5-6 inches on the ski hills overnight, sparking life back into what had been a dwindling base. Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson explored wet freshies on a blue sky Tuesday morning near The Funnel on Snowmass.
ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 6″ in the past 24 hours, 6″ in 48 hours and 13″ in the last 7 days. High of 46°, low of 25°.
ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: The storm that rolled through the valley last night was quick, but thoughtful enough to leave a significant smattering of moist powder to ski. With temps still in the 40’s, it probably won’t last long, so get out and enjoy the new dose while you can! It’s chillier than it has been, but still feels warm enough for a light coat. There are quite a few folks skiing Snowmass today, so tone it down a notch, Speed Racer!
LIFT LINE STATUS: Fanny Hill was slammed, with at least a 15 minute wait this morning. But the Elk Camp side had hardly any wait at all.
