Here's my short version trip report on Vail Monday 1/16/12.
I had a great day! Skied my tail off. It snowed lightly all day that turned to a blizzard about 3 pm. My last few runs were on some really good snow. I spent most the day at Game Creek. This storm is a good start, but there is still more needed to open up the back bowls. It sounds like another storm is on its way.
