Vail official report: 0 inches new snow, 1 inch in last 24 hours
Vail Daily field report: 6 new inches new snow in places
Liftline status: No lines anywhere today
Breakdown: If you’re wondering how we could be having such a great season, yet still have not reached 300 inches of snow for the season, blame the measuring stick. Vail only reported 1 inch of snow in 24 hours between Monday and Tuesday. Our Monday report showed it to be an absolute powder day, with at least half a foot of new snow that went unreported.
Snowcast: Moderate snow will fall on most mountains Wednesday through Thursday and Thursday could be a powder day but there’s lots of uncertainty on that, reports meteorologist Joel Gratz with opensnow.com.
