Aspen has so much snow, that the Aspen Skiing Company has decided to reopen the mountain from 13th to 15th of June for skiers.

Record winter snowfall left the mountain covered with snow, with an average of more than 3 feet of snow on the upper slopes. So this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aspen will open seven runs and 45 acres of terrain.

Reopening the ski area at this time of year is a first for the resort. Rich Burkley, the Vice President of Mountain Operations commented on the current snow conditions, “It's your typical early summer conditions. Better than a glacier, but not as good as a powder day. It will certainly be fun and is the perfect excuse for having a beer or two at the Sundeck. If you've got it, ski it.”:cool:
