Spring snow blankets Aspen
Not a bad little spring powder day to wake up to Thursday morning, wouldn’t you agree?
With the offseason in full swing, it was a quiet, white walk around Aspen as more than 6 inches of snow came down overnight. It felt more like a February morning, except with spring colors trying to peak out and no line at the Silver Queen Gondola.
The late-spring storm is expected to last overnight into Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service, then move out sometime Saturday. But no worries, sunny skies and 60 degrees should return by Sunday. And look forward to the snowfall adding a little more juice to the runoff.
Aspen City Council approved a contract with Daniel Joseph (DJ) Watkins during Tuesday’s regular meeting to move forward with his intentions to operate his proposed “Aspen Collective,” which is currently occupied by Mia Valley’s Valley Fine Art.
