Sunday at Vail

POST #    2383

Sunday proved to be one of the nicer days for me while I was in Vail. While Thursday was cold, Friday was even colder. The same weather system that is chilling the midwest and the northeast was over Colorado on Thursday and Friday. The middle of the mountain registered at a balmy -11°. Factor in the wind and the temperatures were as cold as -49° at the peak of the mountain and that's not even including the chill you get when you're heading downhill. My face and toes were frozen solid. It was so cold that I would stop on the trails so I could regain some feeling in my face.

Because of the wind (there were wind gusts up to 40 MPH), the back bowls were closed Friday and parts of Saturday. Thankfully they opened before my last day on Monday.
