On The Hill: Tuesday cruiseday on the fast and fabulous Sneaky’s at Snowmass
VIDEO: Mid-week is an excellent time to hit the popular Snowmass Ski Area. Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson takes a thrilling run down the spine of The Burn on one of his all-time favorite runs, Sneakeys, and discovers that the new snow has freshened up the top of Snowmass nicely over the past few days.

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 3″ in 48 hours and 3″ in the last 7 days. High of 34°, low of 12°.
ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: The small storm that was expected to persist into Tuesday sort of fizzled out late Monday, but has freshened up the top of The Burn on Snowmass, which was starting to ski pretty thinly this past weekend. It is not very windy, and temps in the 30’s make it a nice, comfortable day. Lighting is variable as the last wave of this storm rolls through.
LIFT LINE STATUS: Not bad for January at Snowmass! About five minutes at the Fanny Hill six-pack.
