Vail Snow Report – 31st March 2012

Spring sunshine continues as Lars and Papa T “squeeze the last few drops from the season” at Vail, Colorado for today’s snow report.

With temperatures once again warm, conditions were ideal today for skiing the brilliant spring corn that more often than not dominates this part of the season.

Unfortunately, the snow is thin on the ground and some areas of Vail are already closed due to the lack of cover. It is the reminder that this season certainly was not one for the record books. Having said that, there is still plenty of snow on the ground to enjoy a few late season turns, especially if you like some great groomers, or a few soft bumps.

Vail Spring Snow Report - March 31st 2012

Don't lean back when you ski the bumps!

In fact, late in the season is a great time to learn how to ski bumps, because this is when the snow gets a little slower and a little more forgiving. Gone are any remnants of icy bumps as the spring corn allows even beginners to learn how to grab a good edge as they negotiate moguls across their favorite resort.

Today, Lars gives some great tips on learning how to ski bumps, as he enjoys some late season fun in the sun. Watch as he explains in plain English the steps to a perfect turn on the moguls.

We are still expecting a change through tomorrow night with a few inches of fluff to give us maybe one last reminder of the good stuff before we think about pulling out the golf clubs and mountain bikes.

For now, we wait with fingers crossed at Vail Colorado for tomorrows snow report to hopefully bring news of the upcoming snowfall.

Enjoyed this? Here’s some other stuff we think you’ll find is awesome too!
