Aspen/Snowmass’ mid-mountain and mountain-top weather stations report ongoing snow accumulations so you don’t have to wait until the morning to know how much fell. On Aspen Highlands, snow is tracked at Cloud Nine; on Snowmass, at the base of High Alpine lift; at Aspen Mountain snow is tracked from the base of Gent’s Ridge, and on Buttermilk, it’s monitored from the top only.
