Default Vail with powder!!

Hey guys, sitting in our condo in vail and can't see 30 yards out the window! Its been snowing pretty hard since around 4 this afternoon and doesn't look like it'll let up til tomorrow afternoon.

Where do you guys think I should go for my only powder day i'll get this season (damn el nino). Going to definatly be one of the first chairs. What I usually do (last season) is do like every other gaper and head right for china bowl then blue sky. Blue sky is definatly great but feel like I could make more of it haha. Can anyone vouch for how mongolia/sibera bowls are? (depending on how much snow we get might check them out). Seems good but hard to get in/out of (maybe late day stashes?). Also might just lap pride or avanti until that area gets tracked out.

Any suggestions? Powder addict here about to get his only fix for the year so help me out lol.

There is talk of another storm for the weekend.

As far as the OP's question goes (probably too late), Vail is only reporting 5". Enough for a decent day, but not huge. Look for North facing shady slopes. This storm is yet again another upslope. North facing slopes have been acting like a fetch big time during these storms. If you find the right spot, well over a foot could be deposited in there. My guess is that Blue Sky would be the spot to hit. I'd beeline for it and skip other runs.

Lol. The low here in Atlanta last night was 50 degrees! High of 62 tomorrow. Was 70 last weekend. Been playing soccer, and riding my motorcycle a bunch. Might play some frisbee golf tomorrow.

I'll get around to summer-izing my snowboard for storage at some point
