The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Weather: Very sunny but cold enough on top to keep the new powder soft

Liftline status: Pretty busy today.

Breakdown: While Vail was only expected to get 4-6 inches from the recent storm, we got a whole foot, despite a lot of sun on Wednesday it’s still soft and nice.

Snowcast: Expect more light snow on the way for Friday night, reports meteorologist Joel Gratz with opensnow.com.
