Some of the best days I've seen in vail in the 15 years I've been coming here. And tomorrow should be amazing. For those who have issues with the crowd... Stop taking the most popular lift on the most popular day, silly.

Can somebody name this trail at Vail?  I ventured on to this trail but forgot the name.  All I know was that it is black, but it seems like a blue.  I would like to ski it again.

lots of powder and no people. my kind of day. as for intermediate snowboarders... session the eagle bahn, pride express and/or northwoods express. At the top of northwoods go left down timberline cat till you see something on your left you feel comfortable with. The farther you go down the cat, the easier it gets.
