Vail Daily field report: It felt like a foot or more in places

Weather: Snowing and cold

Liftline status: Not bad at all for a powder day

Run of the day: Tree runs are where you’ll find the best visibility today

Breakdown: There’s been so much snow over the last few days, it’s easy to lose track of just how much we’ve received. But when you find a pocket that has the full amount, you’ll surely remember. With the way the winds blew the snow around, there’s pockets that will leave you completely covered in snow today.

Snowcast: The National Weather service forecasts snow Monday and a 30 percent chance Monday night. It is also forecasting a 20 percent chance of snow Tuesday before 3 p.m.
