Conditions just keep getting better!
This morning, we woke to about 6" of new. It was enough to really screw up the big rigs, and virtually block the roads, taking almost 2 hrs to drive the 10 miles from Avon to Vail.
The entire mtn had about the same 6" all over it, improving the conditions on the lower part of the front side immensely! And the forecast is for continued snowshowers for the next couple of days... Could be a much better finish to the season then we were anticipating just a couple of weeks ago!
As expected, things are beginning to quiet down a notch. Once the morning rush is over, and the crowds spread themselves out across the mtn, there are almost no lift lines to speak of.
Steelman- I'm sorry we didn't connect! Friday I was still on the hill until almost 4:30, then had to run over to Summit County to attend to some errands, didn't get back until about 9pm... Maybe next time you are out?
It was great to meet up with FOX, though I was bummed we didn't get to make even a single turn together. It sounds as though he had several others to show him around, though.
Double D- you can usually find me in the Ski School office just at the bottom of Chair 8 (Born Free Express) either between 8:50 am- 9am, or after about 4pm. If you get in touch with me before you arrive, I might be able to hook you up with some of those $30 coupons which are floating around. It's even possible that I might have a couple of days off while you are here- my scheduled days off are Wed and Thur, but all are subject to being rescinded at any time...
Looking forward to meeting you!
