This past Saturday was a POW POW day for sure!!! didn't need to look hard to find freshies! The ride to Vail took about 2 hours from Denver because of the "safe" driving on the icy roads east of Summit County. We were on our ski's by 9:30 and skied hard until abou 2:30. The day started out being beautiful and sunny. I actually had to open my vents on my jacket and helmet. I skiied on Seldom for my first time. I often will drop into Ricky's Ridge, but I wanted to try something new. It was great!!! We had some great POW POW shots! The snow was excellent. We found powder to be waist deep in certain areas. And then...all of a sudden, we found ourselves skiing through the cloud while in China Bowl. Even though we were in the cloud, we still had to venture to Blue Sky. Blue Sky was a bit tracked up...well very tracked up...HOWEVER, we still found freshies. It was just that kind of day. Vail still ranks number 1 in my book for resorts that are part of the Colorad Pass. No matter what day I find myself at Vail, I seem to always find nice pow pow and often freshies. The resort is big enough to offer this type of great skiing. I would recommend to never pass up an opportunity to ski Vail if you do not regularly have this type of opportunity. Thanks, Rippin Skiers
