Vail official report: 0″ new snow, 7″ in last week

Vail Daily field report: There’s was a foot of untouched snow in Sun Up/Sun Down this morning

Weather: This morning it was warmer than it’s been over the last few days, but you’ll still want to protect your face. Very sunny.

Liftline status: Slight lines were starting to form at Chairs 3 and 4 once word got out that Chair 5 was running, but nothing too bad

Breakdown: With Chair 5 now running and Sun Up/Sun Down open, it’s a glorious day at Vail. The powder turns were bottomless, especially those on Sun Up, accessed from chairs 3 and 7

Snowcast: We’ll be dry for another week or so, NOAA is reporting
