Aspen's First Snow of the 2018-19 Winter

Posted: 15 Oct 2018

Winter has arrived in Aspen! Starting last Wednesday (Oct. 10), a cold, wet storm settled in over Aspen and dropped several inches of snow in town and what appears to be feet of snow on the mountains. Temperatures dropped into the teens on Sunday night (Oct. 14), and Aspenites awoke to mid-winter conditions on Monday morning, albeit with fall foliage still peeking through snow drifts. Read on to see photos of Aspen's first snow of the 2018-19 ski season!
