Massive powder storm pounds Vail Valley; more expected through Wednesday morning
April 6, 2010 —
Another powerful spring storm hammered the Vail Valley with more than a foot of fresh snow Monday night into Tuesday morning and is expected to keep pumping in freshies through Wednesday morning.
Officially, Vail reported 11 inches of new snow Tuesday morning, with the Beav' totaling 13, but those reports came in a 5 a.m., and as of 8 a.m. the snow was still falling steadily. A winter storm watch is in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday.
That means that if you can find your way up here somehow, navigating the nightmare of Vail Pass, you're going to be rewarded with small, post-Easter crowds and plenty of snow.
A season of below-average snow so far has suddenly turned serious. A storm late last week produced a foot, with a few more inches over the weekend, and now things are looking even better for a strong finish to the season.
Vail closes April 18, with an amazing Spring Back to Vail concert lineup throughout that weekend, and Beaver Creek closes April 11.
