I second the notion of "do not skip the backbowls at Vail". They are great. I was just up there last weekend and despite the lack of snow recently there was still plenty of untracked pow to be had. I have a feeling a lot of people think the back bowls are too far out of the way, which is fine by me, keeps em fresh.
I cant wait! Im staying in breck what time should we head out to make it to vail and make way to the bowls?
