On the Hill video ski report: Friday powder day at Vail

Brought to you by and the .Vail official report: 0" new snowVail daily field report: 3-4 inches light snowWeather: Cold, snowy and windyLiftline status: Not bad at all for a Friday powder day. Eagle Bahn gondola maze wasn't very full at 9 a.m., nothing on Chair 8.Run of the day: Gotta go where the wind blows. Ramshorn is probably great, as it appeared the winds were blowing right into that run.Breakdown: The storm came in early, presumably after 5 a.m., as Vail reported 0" new snow at that time. But it came in hard, dumping a few inches in the first few hours. Conditions for skiing on Vail mountain are fantastic. Conditions for driving on the roads getting there, are not so fantastic.Snowcast: Looks like temperatures are going to drop, maybe too low for more snow.

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