Vail Valley receives first Major Snow Storm

VAIL, Colorado — Vail got its first blast of snow Monday, inspiring many local skiers and snowboarders to check out Arapahoe Basin's opening day.  Only problem: Getting there was pretty epic in and of itself.  Stuck in standstill traffic on Interstate 70 Monday morning, Eagle resident Eric Tarkanian hit a snag in his trip to A-basin.  Earlier that morning he looked at the mountain's web cam and liked what he saw: Lots of snow and not-too-large crowds.
