As of Saturday, January 19, the sky is blue, and there is another half-foot to foot of snow on the ground in Summit County and Vail. What better conditions to explore Vail's Blue Sky Basin?
A week ago, the skiing was very good at Vail, but the snow was still thin in spots, and you probably wouldn't want to bring your very best skis off-piste. By now things have surely improved! I haven't been to Vail in a a week, but Summit County and Winter Park are both excellent. Vail/Beaver Creek, the Aspen areas, and Steamboat have all reported outstanding snowfall in the past few days.
And there's more on the way!
