The Snow is GREAT IN VAIL!

January ended with a bang as Vail Mountain was blessed with another nine inches of fresh powder snow since Wednesday morning and at least another inch since the official report today, bringing the week’s cumulative total to two feet with more snow still falling throughout the valley.

We are enjoying the fresh powder and hope Mother Nature continues to snow on us! Come join me on the slopes!
