ASPEN — First lady Michelle Obama is spending Presidents Day weekend in Aspen with her daughters, Sasha and Malia.

Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo tells The Aspen Daily News (http://bit.ly/1c9OGZb) "she likes it here," noting that this is Obama's third consecutive trip to Aspen over the holiday weekend.

DiSalvo says he was notified three weeks ago of the first lady's ski trip, and eight local law enforcement officers — comprised of sheriff's deputies and Aspen police — have been added to the security detail for the visit.

The Obamas arrived in Aspen on Friday and are scheduled to leave Monday afternoon.
