There are two schools of thought, one says that bluebird days can only happen after a snowy day. The other argues that any clear and sunny day in winter is a bluebird day.  This next week the debate is bound to go on. 

Vail woke up to 3″ of snow yesterday. Today there was no new snow on the ground, but the sky was perfectly blue, by noon most runs were soft and with slushy moguls. Later this week we might catch a few inches of snow if everything comes into place, but most likely the next storm will arrive by next Wednesday or later. Before that we’ll have plenty of sunny days, ideal for a late start and a late end to the day. Speaking of, March 28th also marks the start of spring hours of operation. From March 28th to April 11 Vail will open at 9am and close at 5pm.
