We love Mondays. We love 'em because they're usually quiet up here at Aspen Snowmass, but we love 'em even more when we awaken from a regenerative Sunday slumber to fresh snow. This past Monday was one of those days. Not typical. Highly anticipated. Voraciously welcomed. If you were here, you were reminded that the last-minute decision to ignore work briefly, forget social networking for a few minutes and book a trip to America's greatest ski town was the right one. If you weren't here, you haven't missed your chance... yet.

Mother Nature loves Aspen Snowmass. So much so, she decided that the 10 inches she laid down on Monday deserved a reprise to the tune of 12 inches on Tuesday. And that was only half of it. Truth is, last week delivered some of the best snow of any week this season, some 4 feet of fluffy Colorado pow. Skiers and snowboarders from all over the world love Aspen Snowmass, and if you've yet to experience these majestic mountains for yourself, then maybe it's time. You'll quickly learn that you too love Aspen Snowmass.

Check out our mountain photos. That leading picture of a skier, waist-deep in pow, that you'll see isn't archived footage. That was yesterday, and this weekend is shaping up to be every bit as memorable. Here, you'll enjoy spacious slopes, find great deals on lodging and lift tickets, savor exquisite cuisine, and delight in Aspen Snowmass's coveted nightlife. You're never too old to live young, never too young to learn that skiing is one of our greatest pleasures and it's never too late to start planning.
