Christmas week may be the busiest week of the ski season with some extra hours at work and longer lift lines for locals in all ski towns, but soon enough, January 2nd will appear. As January begins, tourist visits tend to drop, and local residents get out and enjoy more time and space on their local hill. Hard to believe just a month ago everyone was so desperately praying for snow.
Aspen, Colorado is celebrating an incredible December snowfall, reporting the second snowiest December since they began recording in 1934. Just was reading The best of times by Paul E. Anna in today’s Aspen Times.
”Longtime locals are suggesting this may be the best December- into-January snow of all time. As we get ready for the new year, our slopes are in epic condition.”
No doubt about it, the mood is pretty great up there in the Colorado high country these days … looks like it is setting up to be a very Happy New Year!
