Vail withdraws plan for groomed catwalk to Earl’s Bowl

Good news for those who enjoy the uncrowded terrain in Earl’s Bowl at Vail. The Vail Daily has reported that Vail Resorts has given up on plans to build a groomed catwalk to Earl’s Bowl. Meaning that users will still have to work a little to access the sidecountry west of Blue Sky Basin. Meaning that more people will not be venturing out the gate and into your stash. Meaning more fresh snow for those that don’t mind a small hike, like these powder junkies:

Meaning more untouched runs like this:

 Also, it’s been snowing like gangbusters this December. A small avalanche slid down Lover’s Leap in Blue Sky Basin on Sunday. Be safe out there you powder freaks.
