On the Hill: Bottomless powder for Chair 5 opening at Vail
December 21, 2012
Vail official report: 0″ new snow
Vail Daily field report: 2 feet or more in the areas serviced by Chairs 5 and 17
Weather: A little warmer than yesterday, sunny with no clouds or wind
Run of the Day: Forever
Liftline status: Not bad at all at Gondola One and Chair 4 early this morning. Most people seemed to think Chair 5 wasn’t opening until tomorrow.
Breakdown: Sun Up and Sun Down bowls are now open! Vail sent out a press release yesterday saying they will be open Saturday, but most people didn’t seem to realize that “will be open Saturday” also means “could be open Friday.” So with minimal lines at Gondola One and Chair 4 to get there, it was a powder lover’s paradise this morning with bottomless tracks available all over Sun Up and Sun Down.
Snowcast: Looks like Monday.
