On the Hill: Warm temps, but powder persists at Vail

John LaContenewsroom@vaildaily.comVail, CO Colorado

Brought to you by and the .Vail official report: 0″ new snowWeather: Warm and cloudyLiftline status: Pretty busy, maze at Gondola One was packed at 10 a.m.Run of the day: HeadwallBreakdown: After receiving nearly a foot of new snow Friday, Saturday was really warm and the fresh stuff turned to mashed a potato-like consistency. The trees would be good, with with the immense crowds yesterday, the popular tree runs got pretty well tracked out. The hike-to stash spots are probably still good, though, and the groomers are running nicely since the surface is so soft from the warm temps. It’s cloudy, though, and the visibility on the open runs isn’t the best. Wear a yellow lens if you have one. Snowcast: Looks like more snow is on the way tonight.
