On the Hill video ski report: Great snow with more on the way at Vail
Vail official report: 0 inches new snow
Weather: Cold this morning, but the sun is starting to show which will warm things up
Liftline status: Slightly longer line than usual at the Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead as it was not running for the first 20-30 mins of operation today.
Run of the day: Simba
Breakdown: It’s a groomer day today, but unlike the groomer days of November, the large snow storms of December have allowed for more than 3,600 acres of terrain to be open at Vail now, along with 28 lifts. The seven inches of new snow we received for Christmas yesterday, along with Vail’s impeccable groom, is making for a great surface to carve into today. If the clouds keep leaving the skies, as they appear to be, look for it to get better as the day goes on and that surface softens up.
Snowcast: NOAA says there’s a 60-80 percent chance that the snow will start tonight and not let up until Friday.-

Developers are circling Minturn, with hundreds of new homes being proposed, but town’s water situation will dictate their fate.
