Thanks for that update.
FWIW, I've found VR's daily snowfall reports to be fairly accurate. However, as I hope to pay a visit with Baz Jr. early next month, please do keep on spreading the Vail Hatred, and not just here on Epic. Please let everyone on NS, TGR, BC, the New York Times, USA Today, and any other venue that you can think of know how horrible it is to ski there.
Baz Jr. and I know our way around some, and can entertain ourselves and our friends mightily, and find some stashes even a day or two after a good dump. But if you can dissuade others from visiting the mountain during our stay, I'm sure that we can benefit from your disinformation.
I generally find that Vail tends to underreport snow based on their snow stake location at Mid Vail compared to where I tend to ski....Back Bowls and BSB and Chairs 10 and 11 but they do own Breck and they are the worst about over reporting snow. Every large mountain has problems with reporting snow because some places on the mountain get more and some get less so depending on where you ski you'll get different conditions. I think (and it's just my opinion) that the resort should report a number that attempts to represent the avg experience across the mountain. I think Vail does that fairly well but Breck does not.
