On the Hill: Bottomless powder for Chair 5 opening at Vail

Vail official report: 0" new snow

Vail Daily field report: 2 feet or more in the areas serviced by Chairs 5 and 17

Weather: A little warmer than yesterday, sunny with no clouds or wind

Run of the Day: Forever

Liftline status: Not bad at all at Gondola One and Chair 4 early this morning. Most people seemed to think Chair 5 wasn't opening until tomorrow.

Breakdown: Sun Up and Sun Down bowls are now open! Vail sent out a press release yesterday saying they will be open Saturday, but most people didn't seem to realize that "will be open Saturday" also means "could be open Friday." So with minimal lines at Gondola One and Chair 4 to get there, it was a powder lover's paradise this morning with bottomless tracks available all over Sun Up and Sun Down.

Snowcast: Looks like Monday.

On the Hill is shot with a GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition, $299,
