Dog days of November

Kirra Sherman, along with her four-legged friends, Pepper, left, and Harvey, right, slides down the final pitch on Aspen Mountain Friday afternoon, enjoying the groomed section of the Little Nell ski run. Opening day is still set for Nov. 28, but thanks to October’s snow accumulations, those willing to earn their turns have had access to the mountain for weeks, before regulations in place during the season preventing dogs from joining on a skin come into effect.
