OK - We finally have excellent snow conditions. It's been a lean year up until now, but finally the snow gods have come through. The Back Bowls and Blue Sky basin are open - here's a video from this weekend - with a lot more snow on the way. If you've not already planned your trip to Vail/Beaver Creek - do it now, as the pent up demand is about to explode. If watching the video from this weekend doesn't get you excited for skiing - nothing will!
