Yesterday saw huge amounts of people in Vail, with the Vail Village parking structure filling up at one point during the day. But the resort continues to open more and more terrain for those crowds to space out within -- today marked the second day of action for the famed Golden Peak terrain park, which hosted a USASA slopestyle event on Saturday and will be home to Vail's first-ever 22-foot halfpipe for the Burton U.S. Open of Snowboarding this season.Snowcast: Looks like we're in store for a good weekend; Thursday through Saturday should see a decent amount of snow
