Outer Mongolia does have the Silk Road to contend with, especially hard for boarders to get back to Orient Express but well worth the effort for those with fat skis to make the trek over.

Snow was knee deep everywhere today in the trees, back bowls opened late morning and were amazing. Laid down so many fresh tracks they start calling me DJ stashmaster

I thought it would be a good idea to air the car out while parked, any suggestions?

Great stuff if you're willing to hike 20-30 minutes otherwise it's all tracked out lumpy moguls. Would stay away unless you're into 3 ft high moguls or you're ok with hiking. Too much snow to groom:) again, everything in-bounds is totally tracked out .

I thought it was pretty good left over stashes.  Dave said enough of the powder already.  He only wanted to do the green catwalks.

If your not going fast enough through the untouched snow in the trees then you can easily get stuck.  Thursday and Friday have been days you dream about.  Gotta love Vail.

Just a perfect day. Nary a turn that wasn't fresh. Some lines, but played all day in back and would do it again tomorrow. Part of the reason for the long line at 8:30 was they could open right away due to aval blasting!

Huge wait this morning when the best snow on the mountain was skied on Thursday .
Most of the 21 inches fell Thursday morning 
and afternoon . 

Great but heavier moisture snow today and 
got chopped up pretty quickly . 

Probably 2 feet on Thursday of super light 
Untracked snow was by far the better day

Ha!  Man, you guys don't get it...  Today was unreal.    Did you really want to stand in line with all of Denver?  Anyone who saw that and hit up Breck probably still had a great day... and wasn't in front of you at Vail.   Sometimes secrets are best kept.

24 inches truly. A day of days. Long lines, but snow was worth it. It sucks that vail is flat though bc very easy to get bogged down. I've never seen so much snow get skied out so fast! Overall a truly epic day though.

Epic fail.   Wrong resort today.   Less snow than reported, longest lines I've ever seen at the base.  Wish I was at Breck for their 2+ foot day!    Efff!!!

Way more than 12 inches on the mountain.  Skied blue sky the majority of the day and the snow was above my boot.  Tons of fresh untouched snow through the trees.  And it's supposed to snow straight through to Saturday Morning.  Expecting knee deep skiing by tomorrow.  Incredible conditions.

Don't believe the hype, not worth the visit. Stay away, enjoy the Super Bowl and allow those of us up here to deal with the existing conditions.

Started snowing pretty good in the bowls and blue sky. I checked the stake when I got home and nothing. Where is that thing, under a roof?
