It Just Keeps Snowing At Aspen/Snowmass

Comments by Dave Amirault/

"God damn!" – That's how just about everyone was describing this morning at Aspen Highlands.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that a series have storms have been pounding the west this week. Here in Aspen, we're measuring daily snow totals in FEET and the storms don't seem to have any end in sight. 

This morning, the snow report showed 13"+ at Aspen Highlands, early morning phone calls and text messages were made and a tight knit crew of skiers and snowboarders were ready for first chair. Along for the ride was Aspen's resident shutter-thug, Jeremy Swanson.  Here are some of the shots from this morning.

Peter Gaston loves skiing pow, but he also loves to stay in the air as much as he can.

 

Getting waist deep snow is easy for me, since I'm only 5'5.

If Chase Dillon was on Foursquare, he would have most certainly checked into the white room.

Riding up the Exhibition chair at the base of Aspen Highlands. Can you believe there's even more snow at the top?!

We can't see Aaron's face with all that pow on it, but I'm willing to bet he's smiling.

Hmm, looks like my Freeskier sticker fell off my helmet. Hey Harvey, mail me a few more.

This video is from yesterday (12/20/2010) and shows what we had BEFORE the snow overnight! Unfortunately, we didn't shoot any video today sine we were too busy getting shots.
