Aspen/Snowmass Christmas gift: 32" of snow and more on the way

Snowfall in Aspen is inching towards a December record.

Look no further than the buried cars, grinning skiers and official statistics to see that this December already boasts Aspen's second biggest snowfall total since the city began collecting such data in the 1930s. As of yesterday morning, there were 57.4 inches recorded for December at the city's official weather station at the water plant. Snow continuously dropped from the sky yesterday and more was in the forecast, so by today the 1953 mark of 58.3 inches is expected to be exceeded.

Dear Aspen Community

I am writing to thank everyone who participated in our very special 30th anniversary celebration we held at the Club this past Tuesday. The event which was called ‘Pursuing Possibilities’ as it benefited three extraordinary individuals in our community: Amanda Boxtel, Leah Roland and Kasie Burtard was a tremendous success. Though the kindness and generosity of the over 600 people who attended, Amanda, Leah and Kasie, who each have spinal cord injuries, raised over $100,000 of their $224,000 goal to allow them to travel to India and receive a promising stem cell therapy.

It was a turbulent, tumultuous year - 1967. The Vietnam War was escalating and along with it the volume and tenor of anti-war protests. The Summer of Love spurred the hippie movement into full bloom, while race riots spread across the country. Around the world, Israel defeated its Arab neighbors in the Six-Day War and the Biafran War of independence began to tear apart the fledgling nation of Nigeria.
