Time to Hit the Slopes

By Jason Samenow

If you thrive on going from one extreme to the other, consider booking a last minute flight to Aspen, Colorado, to ski a few runs this weekend. After a very snowy winter, Aspen's upper slopes still have an average base of over three feet. Unwilling to let this snow go to waste, Aspen management has decided to re-open parts of Aspen mountain Friday through Sunday. Seven slopes and 45 acres of terrain will be available.

What's the weather in Aspen now?

Today: Partly sunny. A slight chance of rain and snow showers in the morning...then a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Cooler. Highs 45 to 55. West winds 10 to 20 mph. Chance of precipitation 30 percent.

If that's not cold enough for you, temperatures will drop into the 20s tonight. Ready to tune those bindings?
