Aspen official report: 0″ of new snow overnight, 1″ in the past 48 hours, and 10″ in the past week.

Aspen Times field report: Difficult set of factors this morning: high winds have the gondola cars moving very slowly, and relatively huge crowds are stacked up at the bottom waiting for those slow-moving chariots due to the holiday. Throw in a bad wreck on the outskirts of town and you’ve got yourself a good test of patience.

Liftline status: 10-20 minute wait at the base of the Silver Queen Gondola as of 10am. Huge lines compared to normal here in Aspen. Blame it on the long weekend.

Breakdown: Windy, flat light, slow and crowded on Ajax this morning. BUT, the snow was really nice and soft and it’s relatively warm out – with temps in the 40’s. Good day for Buttermilk if you ask me.

Snowcast: This storm could deliver a few inches of wet snow overnight. Temps remain in the 40’s tomorrow, with a parly sunny break from this storm (now in our 16th straight day of a least a dusting of snow) coming on Monday and Tuesday. Then another weak storm arrives.
