Sorry, no pics, but we received 2-3 feet of snow in the Vail Valley this past weekend. We have light snow outside this Sunday (April 25th). We received more snow this April than any other month this winter.

April 7th, 19 inches of new snow in Vail today. That makes 32 inches in the last two days. I don’t know about you but I think I’m going skiing today. More updates once we get out there. Chris R.

13 more inches of snow in Vail Colorado today and it has been snowing all day. Here is a quick pic standing in line at Chair 8 Born Free Express, waiting for the lifts to open at 8:30am Chris R.
Oh boy, it looks like April might be our best month for snow in the 2009-2010 ski season. Vail mountain reported another 2 inches of new snow at 6am. Light snow all morning so far and more on the way perhaps on Tuesday. Hope to get you pictures late this afternoon.
Afternoon update: it warmed up, so the snow at the bottom was turning to corn. Most of the powder in the Back Bowls turned to mashed potatoes. Bumps were soft. Below are some pictures mostly from the Front Side of Vail Mountain. Chris R.

More snowy trees. I’ll title this photo “Snow on Trees” and sell it for lots and lots.
Happy, happy, happy
10 inches of new snow in Vail reported March 27th. It has been snowing off and on all day. They are forecasting sun all Sunday and Monday. It should be a heck of a week !
No pictures today, but we received a surprise this Friday morning with 3 inches of new snow in Vail. This is on top of the 2 inches from yesterday. Down in town it was a bit less, but this snow will freshen the slopes up just in time for the busy President’s weekend holiday. See you out there !
Some of us locals can get pretty lazy mid-season and we can go a week without skiing. Yeah, I know……… But it was good to get out there again. Still no super huge dumps, but every three days or so we get another 3 inches or something. Just enough to keep things soft and keep the skiing good. The sun came out today and we had a trace of new snow. Multiple runs in China Bowl. If you stuck to the west facing slopes in China, the powder was still pretty soft. Some misc. pictures using the camera phone below. They groomed Headwall and Emperor’s choice in the back, which is where we spent most of the day. I went skiing with Marilyn Levey from New York. She took one of those Her Turn workshops through Vail this past weekend and raved about how great it was. Check it out the link for more information. Until next time… Chris R.

I thought I had more pictures, sorry………
Since I had been feeling better I took to the slopes February 2nd Tuesday morning. Wow, was I reminded of how great it is to be on Vail Mountain when there are no crowds! The Gondola, Game Creek, Chair 5, Chair 11 and Chair 4; no lines! It was heaven for those who have only hours before they have to work. My runs were in the glistening sun and as though I was all alone; it was one of my favorite days on the mountain. I hope your upcoming days here in Vail mirror my Tuesday morning and if you haven’t booked your accommodations here at the Antlers at Vail, well we’re here waiting
Lots of sunshine today. I went out early as I had to start work mid-day. The Vail groomers were nice and soft early morning. We did a number of runs in the Northwoods area. Highs are expected in the upper 30s today with more snow expected Wed or Thursday. Everything is open. If you are looking for some Vail lodging for this upcoming Martin Luther King weekend, we don’t have but a handful of rooms left, so let us know soon. Chris R.
