This is the most beautiful mountain in Colorado. Aspen is the most popular place for skiing and snowboarding.
On the long weekend of Presidents' Day, nowhere else is better for snowboarding than in Aspen. It could be popular because this weekend Michelle Obama came and visited Aspen to ski as well. http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/home/161262.
There is a nice blue sky and the weather is not too cold. It is the perfect weekend for snowboarding.
