Brought to you by and the .Vail official report: 1″ new snowVail Daily field report: 3″ and countingWeather: Snowy, temps in the 20sLiftline status: Nothing at Chairs 6, 10, 14Run of the day: Blue Ox was groomed yesterday, so the new snow landed on a nice surface thereBreakdown: The luck of the Irish is upon us! With blizzard-like conditions on Vail Mountain as of the filing of this report, once again we’re getting more snow right as we need it. Yesterday’s flakes were wet and heavy, but today’s are light and fluffy, making it a great surface to ski. It wasn’t a full-on powder day yet this morning, but if it continues like it is there will be half a foot or more by the end of the day.Snowcast: It should continue off and on through tomorrow, say forecasters.
