Weather: Snowing

Liftline status: Not bad for a powder day, presumably due to Vail Pass being closed for a while this morning

Run of the day: Anything steep

Breakdown: With 5 inches as of 5 a.m. and more steadily dropping since then, it’s a deep powder day at Vail. It’s storm skiing, visibility is tough, beware of vertigo but don’t let it hold you back – if you fall it won’t hurt.

Snowcast: Forecasters are saying we should receive a foot or more Wednesday through Friday.
