Upcoming Events: Arapahoe Basin 2017 Opening Day, Breckenridge 2017 Opening Day

Skied at Vail on January 8, 2016

Sundown Bowl at Vail

Rachel had never been to Vail and since we were in town for a conference, we made the most of a quiet Friday on the mountain.

Creek near Cascade Resort in Vail

After a leisurely walk along the creek, we started at the Cascade Hotel’s lift where there is literally no line to wait in.

We enjoyed plenty of fresh snow and untouched powder (with about 2″ overnight) stashed away in the Game Creek Bowl and back in the Sun Down Bowl.

After three solid hours and 8 long runs, we ended our (13k vertical feet) day back at the Cascade feeling pretty good. I really look forward to a huge powder day at Vail, it’s been too long (for me)…
