Spring snow blankets Aspen

Staff report

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.
