Not cold, winds aren’t bad.Liftline status: Mid Vail chairs are busy, no line to get there on Gondola One, though.Run of the day: Ouzo was groomed yesterday, so that run will be good today, and the glade alongside it is always good on a powder dayBreakdown: We’re off to a great start in March, with 15 inches total reported this month so far and more on the way, as it continued to snow after today’s official tally was filed.

Snowcast: It should dry out starting tomorrow for at least a few days, say forescasters.
