Liftline status: Liftlines aren’t bad anywhere at Vail today, presumably due to Beaver Creek’s opening this morning

Run of the day: Anything accessed by Chair 4

Breakdown: Now that Chair 4, Vail’s newest and only 6-seat chair, is up and running for the season, it opens Vail up to have more than 600 acres of new terrain. The untracked snow on Zot was fun to ride on but harder than expected.

Snowcast: Nothing in the forecast for the next few days, but it looks like a system could come through this weekend and give us some snow.
