On the Hill video ski report: Freezing cold on Vail Mountain

John LaContenewsroom@vaildaily.comVail, CO Colorado

Brought to you by and the .Vail official report: 0″ new snowVail Daily field report: 1 cmnew snowWeather: Freezing cold! But sunnyLiftline status: Lines weren’t bad at all before 9 a.m., presumably due to the extremely cold temp.Run of the day: We weresurprised to see Lindsey’s on the grooming report this morning, along with The Preserve and ShowboatBreakdown: The thermometer at the top of the Eagle Bahn gondola read -10 this morning at 8:40 a.m. When it’s this cold, the snow doesn’t move well and gets a chalky consistency to it. It’s grippy and more difficult to ski, so guests looking to enjoy a good day on the slopes may want to wait a few hours for it to warm up. With the abundant sunshine we’re seeing out there, it will get warmer today, but protect your face because if the frostbite doesn’t get you, the sunburn will. Snowcast: Nothing for at least a week
