The snow arrived Thursday and began to fall at a rate we don’t often see (or at least for too long) through sometime Saturday morning. When it was all said and done, the words historic or even biblical were being thrown around to describe the snowfall and skiing. If hard numbers matter, Aspen Mountain measured 24″ in 24 hours, it was the second biggest one-day snowfall recorded in 50+ years of Highlands records, and a full three feet was up in the Bowl before we saw the sun emerge.
What a weekend. Of course the Broncos didn’t win the Superbowl, you might say they didn’t even show up, but we just wrote it off as Aspen (or greater Colorado) having used all our good karma on the storm, leaving nothing for the game. I bet the collective memories from the snow will last a lot longer than a fleeting NFL game.
What a weekend.
