First off all, I am new to this forum, posting for the first time, so bare with me.
I am booked to go to Vail next week for 3 days on the slopes. I have never been out west to ski. I do about 20 days on the snow each season on the east coast, either at Killington or Mont-Tremblant, so I have no idea what to expect.
I have been reading the weather reports for Vail for the past week, and if it was an East Coast trip, I would be scrambling to change my plans. Weather in the low 40s and high 30s, and no significant snow for weeks. So, anyone out at Vail, or who has been out there consistently, can you please let me know if it's worth making the trip out for a couple of days, or should I wait until later on in the season?
Also, I have never been at such high altitude, and am concerned that I may loose a day of skiing trying to get used to the altitude. Any though?
Lastly, I am an OK skier, but no expert. I ski mostly blue, and some groomed black runs. Again, is it worth coming out to Vail for only 3 days of skiing next week for someone who is not a hardcore skier.
Thank you all in advance for your replies.
