I love hearing that you are excited to ski Vail. I hope you have great snow and have the best ski experience of your life. I think I'll quit going there when I no longer feel like I'm a lucky S.O.B. just to be there. Vail is a special great place that I can't get enough of. Its a special treat for a lot of us and I still get very excited about every trip I take to get there. I'll be out there to finish my season in about three weeks. Like you, I'm already very excited about getting there. To me , its just that good.
