Vail official report: 0 inches new snow in last 24 hours; 0 inches in last week
Weather: Warm temps with no clouds and a slight wind. The top of Teacup chair was the coldest spot on the mountain today.
Liftline status: The only liftlines we encountered today were at chairs 7 and 2
Run of the day: Yonder was really fun
Breakdown: Epicmix.com tracks what chairs you’ve been riding, and awards users a “pin” for riding every chair in one day. With lifts 22, 27, and some of the other less used lifts now running, it’s a great time to try and get that Vail Conqueror pin.
Snowcast: The National Weather Service says there’s a 40 percent chance of snow Sunday night and a 50 percent chance Monday. It could be a snowy week with a slight chance of snow Wednesday and Thursday, as well.
