On the Hill video ski report: Groomers and soft snow at Vail

Brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

Vail official report; 0" new snow

Vail Daily field report:-Was snowing briefly this morning, but not enough to leave any real-accumulation.

Weather: Cold, but not very cloudy - looks like it should warm up.

Liftline status: Not bad today, no lines anywhere before 9 a.m.

Run of the day: Riva was groomed top to bottom

Breakdown: For a moment this New Year's Eve day morning, it was actually sunny and snowing at the same time. There was maybe a centimeter of dust on top of the regular surface, and that may be a generous estimate.-The full spectrum of snowriding is available at Vail today --we've had nearly 2 feet of snow in the last week, and it has stayed cold so the snow is soft and powdery in some spots and groomed well in others.

Snowcast: NOAA says snow is likely for today and tonight, with a slight chance for more tomorrow.-

On the Hill is shot with a GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition.
