There was never any snow near 12,000 feet in the Elks from the new "storm." All I can tell you is that there was a dusting yesterday morning. Today was beautiful and sunny. Snow is not a concern round' Aspen.

Cool! If the northern aspects are clear, so is everything else. Thanks!

Has anyone been up there? Looks like this week is calling for a lot of snow...wondering if summer conditions will still exist by Sunday.

Around Aspen, there's snow above 12,000 feet on all aspects. Storms have been moving through regularly since Sunday night, each one bringing more snow/hail up high. It's supposed to clear Thursday thru the weekend, but it could be a while before it all melts on sunny aspects. This photo is from 3 pm today.
