January 6, 2012 quick Vail ski report

Friday, January 6th, 2012

We are waiting for more snow but we are certainly skiing in Vail everyday!  Some pictures and a video for you below.  I joined a couple of guests from New York City this afternoon.  We mainly stuck to runs in Northwoods and Chair 14 (Sourdough lift).  The western U.S. has been very dry this winter and yet we are open with 1500 acres.  Conditions are hard packed until we receive some more snow, so stick to the groomed runs for now.  You can ski the bumps (and we do) but they are icy between the tops. We are hoping for 2-5 inches by Sunday morning.

Heading down towards mid-Vail
