On the Hill: Cloudless day on Vail Mountain
Ryan Summerlin November 20, 2012
Tuesday’s Vail Mountain ski report with video
Vail official report: 0 inches.
Line at Chair 8: Nothing much
Weather: Sunny without a single cloud in the sky. No wind but a crisp chill in the air.
Breakdown: Hardpack conditions this morning with plenty of sunshine to soften them up. With crowd numbers significantly less today, it will be a great day to get in some turns. As usual, Vail has put their signature stellar groom on Born Free, making the hill’s only open run a real pleasure to ride.
Snowcast: We’re dry as far as the eye can see.
7-day snow total: 1 inch.
Mid-mountain base: 18 inches.
Percent of terrain open: 2.
Lifts open: 5.
Trails open: 6.
