This is Vail...

Why oh why wasn't I there. Great snow, blue bird skies this weekend. Lots of terrain open. I'm in mourning.
It's the perfect time to go skiing. And it looks like we have warm sunny days coming for most of the week.
By the end of this week, new terrain will be opening all over.
The ski resorts are usually quite coy about when they open what, but we have a rumor from a local in Breckenridge that this week the resort will open the top of Peak 8, allowing people to ski a quiver of blacks on the Imperial Express and Chair 6. That's the first time these runs have opened so early. With their south-facing lines, they usually aren't ideal until late winter.
Must be a good year.
