Vail Daily field report: 7-8 inches feels about right, but it’s heavy snow and rides like a foot or more of the light stuff would.

Weather: Snowing

Liftline status: Not bad at all for a powder day

Run of the day: Anything in Blue Sky

Breakdown: Blue Sky Basin ended up opening late and closing early yesterday, so the snow back there is probably better than most of the mountain today with regard to the traffic it sees.

Snowcast: The National Weather Service says it should continue snowing every day this week except Tuesday.
