On the Hill video ski report: Waist deep powder in spots at Vail

Brought to you by and the .Vail official report: 6 inches new snow in last 24 hoursVail Daily field report: The placement of the measuring stick can make a big difference. We found 2 feet of fresh powder or more in places, waist deep in some spots.Weather: Beautiful bluebird day. It was a little cold in the morning, though.Liftline status: Packed!Run of the day: WowBreakdown: Tons of snow, no clouds, it's classic Vail conditions on the mountain today. With the combination of the snow and the holiday weekend, though, the crowds are immense today. The temps are cold, which should keep the snow powdery, but all the sun could soften things up on the back and crust the surface over for tomorrow, so get out early to best today if you can to best enjoy all the great snow out there.Snowcast: Looks like something more is on the way for Sunday night.

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