January 22, a bit of a Vail powder snow day, 9+ inches

Finally, we are getting a bit of a turn on the snow.  9+inches today and it snowed pretty good throughout the day so maybe another 3 inches or so will be reported on tomorrow’s Vail snow report.  I did a few runs with Antlers at Vail condominium owner John Taylor over in Game Creek Bowl.  The sun will be out the rest of today and tomorrow and then perhaps we get a bit more snow again on Tuesday.  Chair 5 opened today, but mainly with skiing in Sun Up bowl.  From what we could see they have not opened Sun Down bowl.  Portions of Blue Sky Basin and China are open.  We are just about 2300 acres open with more to come.     Chris Ratzlaff
