ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Conditions vary depending on what time of day you find yourself on the mountain. If you’re riding in the morning expect hard packed and icy conditions. If your out in the afternoon expect soft, slushy, heavy powder-like conditions. Most seasoned pros agree that there are a few “golden hours” in the middle of the day (10am – 1ish) where the conditions are just right.
