The Aspen Skiing Company closed the last of its resorts Sunday. Thousands of skiers and riders flocked to Aspen Mountain for late season powder. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen got a debrief from Ski Co. spokesman Jeff Hanle.

Now that the season’s over, the Aspen Skiing Company's workforce will shrink from 3500 people to 600.
