Good skiing to be hadSaturday we skied Beaver Creek to avoid the Front Range hoards, and the coverage was great - lots of soft bumps and powder stashes left over from Friday.
Basically, the coverage is adequate anywhere in Summit and Eagle County. If there is fresh snow right before or durring your visit the skiing is going to be excellent and even if there isn't you're going to have a great time.[/quote]
Like Mr K says!!
I missed last Friday but skied BC on Sat (11" on Friday). BC is skiing great. Besides the left over stashes (can't say where, but all of my usual spots had pow), Golden Eagle(where the Birds of Prey WC is run) was groomed on Sat-what a rush-this has got to be one of the best fall line runs in CO. No moguls, just 2200' verts or so of steep fall line with a couple of rollers to spice things up..not icy at all except where they injected the course w/h20 in Nov
Don't be put off by the reports (the mid mountain base depths at Vail are taken at mid Vail which is very thin this season compared to the N.woods/B Bowls or BSky Basin area) actually the skiing is pretty good just about everywhere.
If the storms keep coming (this Thursday is the forecast for the next one), the skiing will continue to be very good-maybe not as good as last year but pretty darn decent. An average year at Vail/BC is still better than most
