TR: Vail on 2/1/10

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Was on the Born Free chair at about 8:40am.

Connected to the Avanti express and there was 3-5" of fresh on top of the groomed run under the lift.  Hit that and it was FANTASTIC.  100% confidence inspiring.

Headed over to the bowls and found the same fresh snow but there were crusty moguls and poor light in the morning in some spots.

Found some smoother terrain under the Orient Express lift and the groomed strip was nice as well.

Played around in the Blue Sky Basin and hit some nice bumps and tree skiing.

Made our way back to the front side to end the day after about 4 1/2 hours of straight skiing....we were beat!

Had a few beers at Garfinkels before heading back to Breckenridge.

All in all a great day.

Glad to know you had a grand day out. A few inches of fresh sure does make those first few runs joyful.

Thanks for the reconnoiter report.
