On the Hill: Several inches of fresh at Vail

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

Vail official report: 1" new snow at 5 a.m.

Vail Daily field report: 3-4 " new snow by 10 a.m.

Weather: Cloudy, snowing off and on, but the sun did poke through at times this morning

Liftline status: Crowds not bad at all, nothing at Mid VailRun of the day: Ramshorn

Breakdown: It snowed last night and it's still snowing off and on, but the big question at Vail is where will the snow be deepest? Right now the higher elevation aspects on the front side are riding the better than the back side, with more snow, deep enough for face shots in places. We didn't make it out to Blue Sky but usually when the front is better than the back, Blue Sky is even better than the front.

Snowcast: It's supposed to continue on and off today

Bonus edition: Windows on Tuesday morning

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