Vail ski conditions February 1

Vail ski conditions February 1st:  Vail ski area reported 3 inches of new snow today.  It was sort of a surprise as down here at the base there was just a dusting of snow.  When this happens we figure there is only 3 inches up at the very top.  Well….  even at the base of the Avanti lift there was 3 inches and at the top there was 4-5 inches in places.  It was a very dry snow so it won’t last very long, but for at least the next two days things have softened up for us.  This was our chance today to get into the Back Bowls again and to get over to Blue Sky Basin.
