ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 0″ in 48 hours and 1″ in the last 7 days. High of 59°, low of 32°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Super warm, with varying conditions depending on where you ski and when you ski it. Hard corn up top, hardpack down Spar and the top of Nell, then slush starting to form at the bottom of Nell. All of that will change this afternoon, of course, as we move into the freeze/thaw cycle. Big sunscreen day!

LIFT LINE STATUS: Typical Sunday pause at the gondola.
