Sorry about the lack of vail skiing condition updates, but when the snow gets good (as it has been this past week) we don’t have a lot of time for pictures and posting blog updates. We have to hit the slopes, right now. That is just the way it goes. So anyhow…..the skiing has been fantastic this week but we had some warm and sunny weather this past Friday and Saturday. What that means is that Friday and Saturday skiing was GREAT but by Sunday it got pretty icy. We either need more sun or new snow. The bumps are staying soft on the northern facing slopes such as Vail front side and Blue Sky Basin, but the south facing Back Bowls were no good by this Sunday. But don’t despair, it started snowing this Sunday afternoon as we were up on the mountain. We expect 2-4 inches between now and Monday night. Chris R.
