Vail Mountain surpassed its 43-year historical snowfall average of 346 inches at the top of the mountain on Wednesday. It didn't take much, the mountain only got five inches last night, and (one would guess) the mountain surpasses its average about half of the time. But still, this has been a good year. Give Vail a pat on the back. In response, the mountain has decided to keep more terrain open into April. Should be great spring skiing, followed by a great spring party (see post on pond skimming below)
By the way, most of Colorado got a good dump of snow yesterday. The winners in the high country were Loveland and Monarch. Both have 10 inches. More is on the way today.
