Breckenridge official report: 0″,0″,4″

Summit Daily field report: Nice day out there, and a warm morning means the snow will soften.

Weather: High 40°, low 23°. Partly cloudy and mild, a perfect December day.

Lift lines: Not bad this morning.

Breakdown: The conditions are pretty good considering the lack of significant snow recently. Warm temps mean the snowpack is manageable and the groomers are running nice.
