Vail Condition Report — 1.29.2015 Snow Conditions

2015 has been a bad year to live in a Colorado ski town, so far.

Vail has gotten almost no snow throughout all of January.

The last flurry of big snows came before Christmas. We were blessed with one powder day two weeks ago, but only six inches.

After a week of high temperatures, conditions on Vail Mountain are the worst they have been all season. Warm days plus cold nights equals icy snow and tough work for the snowmakers.

Although everything on Vail Mountain is technically open, it is not all covered by snow. There are plenty of exposed rocks, bushes, and treetops sticking through the base.

Conditions on Lionshead are gross in general.

Back Bowls are icy.

We’re praying for snow.
