ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 0″ in 48 hours and 2″ in the last 7 days. High of 42°, low of 24°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: The warmer temps and lack of precipitation of late are having very little noticeable effect on the snowpack on Aspen Mountain. Hard surface covered in a light powder coating make for more than adequate snow sports conditions. Some bare spots and hazards poking through on some bump runs. Otherwise, plenty of snow to enjoy!

LIFT LINE STATUS: No waiting at the Silver Queen Gondola.
