Run of the day: Skree Field

Breakdown: Now that winter conditions have returned to Vail, the skiing is, well, wintery. The groomers are soft and the powder stashes, trees and even sports right on the open run are rocking. With five days left in the season including today, it looks like we’re in for a strong finish.

Snowcast: Forecasters are saying the flakes will keep falling for the next few days
