Old Man Winter blew his first major winter storm through the Roaring Fork Valley over the past five days. Friday brought the largest accumulation of snow, and more fell through Saturday and scattered flurries were reported on Sunday. Aspen Ski Company officials are reporting up to 26 inches of fresh snow from the storm on the ski areas and consistently cold temperatures are predicted to remain throughout this week, before another storm hits the end of the week.
It's off-season in Aspen and that means the semi-annual retail shuffle is under way. Twice each year, retailers and restaurateurs jockey for better locations in and around the downtown core.
D19, a favorite local restaurant of mine, has changed names and moved across the Hyman Avenue into the former Dish/Mogador space. Chef Deanna Marino has a large following of locals and visitors. Reservations will certainly be necessary.

There is a high demand for Airport Parking during the off season as many locals leave town during the slow time. The highest demand days are Thursday through Monday.
To ensure you have a place to leave your car before your next vacation, Airport officials are asking that travellers call the Airport Parking Office to get the current parking lot status and public transportation alternatives.
