The snow fell hard Saturday and Monday night. Vail measured a foot of snow that we desperately needed to open terrain. Vail is working around the clock to get more terrain open daily. Tuesday Janet and I ventured out not expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised. We made our way up chair 8 and were cruising along the cat-walk just in time to get fresh tracks on lower ledges. Half way down we both stopped and giggled. “This is AMAZING, I wish I had my powder skis.” We made our way to the new Gondola, at the top we were shocked to see both chair 3 and 4 open. We rushed over to chair 4 and eyed up the open terrain, changing our minds 3 times with what to ski, we opted for power line and continued laps on Zot, Hunky Dory, Cappuccino, Espresso, Whistle Pig, Swings-ville, South look ma, and chair 4 Cliff area (cliff are not open). I was exhausted by 2:00 and need to save energy for the gym. I hopped on chair 3 and rode the ridge to find Lodgepole, Berries, Avanti, Pickaroon and Columbine were all open, I took my favorite run, ledges, all the way down. What a great day. I am so excited to ski this season. Thank you snow gods for this storm and more storms to come.
