Vail official report: 4 inches new snow in the last 24 hours, 11 inches in the last week

Weather: Cloudy, snowing on and off

Liftline status: No lines at Chair 6 this morning

Breakdown: It's a powder day at Vail, but unlike many of the powder days we see, Vail's 5 a.m. snowfall report is exactly what you'll find on the hill. Often when it's snowing, another inch or two will fall after the 5 a.m. report, but not today. Four inches is what's reported, and that's what's on the slope – just enough to call it a powder day.

Snowcast: Most mountains in Colorado will see 10 or more inches of new snow by Friday morning, reports meteorologist Joel Gratz with opensnow.com.
