Default Anyone Ride Vail in the Last 2 Days?

If so, how are the backbowls right now? Is there finally enough coverage?

Haha, I hope this is sarcasm. I'm headed there tomorrow morning. Hoping with all the snow they have gotten this week, things will still be pretty fresh out there.

That's how it was 2 weeks ago when I was there. So the recent 15" of snow hasn't done much to cover them?

I went to Vail today. I was gonna go to Beaver Creek, but when I looked at the snow reports, Vail had a lot more snow.

The traffic was scary bad and the roads were slick. I got there later than I anticipated. I headed directly to the back part of the mountain. A lot of people were there and it was tracked out. However I came across waist deep freshies over where that rope tow is. I was able to find a lot of deep fresh snow at the bowls. It was covered good and I did not hit rocks. The rocks and poor coverage are over by the lifts.

It was soooo good to finally ride in powder past my knees. It's been over a year for me. Vail was fantastic today despite my later arrival. FYI, waist deep for me is less snow for most people cause I am 5'2.

This was my first day at Vail this season. Glad I payed extra for the 10 days.
