I'm traveling from the east coast to Vail next Friday and I'm trying to access the situation (and decide if I should cancel). I keep hearing about the warm temps and scarcity of snow in the west. Forecasts are calling for cold weather next weekend but not much in the way of snow. I ski green-blue slopes so the lack of the back bowl won't be an issue, and I know there is snow-making capability. I guess I want to know how grassy the slopes are now and if it has snowed in the past few days. Is it very different skiing on man-made snow? Any help from someone in Vail would be appreciated!!
