Vail official report: 2 inches new snow overnight, 7 inches in last week

Vail Daily field report: It snowed a decent amount after Vail gave their 5 a.m. measurement, felt like 4-6 inches by 10 a.m.

Weather: Cloudy, snowing slightly

Breakdown: From the top of the mountain to the bottom, conditions change quite a bit, starting with nice fluff at the top and ending with icy hardpack at the bottom. In between is the heavy chop, which you have to be strong to power through. Conditions today are fun, but not for the faint of heart.

Snowcast: The snow will continue through Sunday night, NOAA is reporting.
