On the Hill video ski report: 5" new powder at Vail

Brought to you by and the .Vail official report: 5" new snowVail Daily field report: Felt like 6-8 inches in spotsWeather: Snowing, cold and cloudyLiftline status: Nothing at Chair 6, One and the Lionshead lifts looked pretty crowded though.Run of the Day: Blue OxBreakdown: While Vail only reported 5" in the last 24 hours, Sunday is a full-on powder day, complete with face shots on the open runs. The wind may have played games with this storm, leaving some patches feeling like a foot, with mere inches in others. You'll be scraping bottom out there on the hard turns, but on the gliders you can enjoy that floating sensation that only a powder day can bring.Snowcast: Perhaps an inch of two in the coming days may fall in the coming days, but forecasters are most looking forward to Wednesday-Friday, which could bring more significant snowfall totals.

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