Vail Terrain Conditions for Opening Day!

As everyone in the valley knows that Vail Mountain opens tomorrow and everyone is excited! This morning we got a couple inches of fresh powder for everyone to enjoy! The mountain’s operation crew was proud to announce today that both Vail Village and Lionshead Village base areas will be opened thanks to the cold temperatures and the most recent snow fall.

This is what Vail had to say regarding the terrain for tomorrow:

The majority of skiing and riding will be available on Born Free with connecting routes from the top of Gondola One and the top of Eagle Bahn Gondola. Beginner terrain will be available at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola around Little Eagle Lift (#15). We are very close to opening much more terrain on natural snow, we just need a little more snow and, more importantly, cold temperatures for our snowmakers and groomers to fill in the few gaps and ditches to connect everything together safely. Ski Patrol is evaluating trails every day and once a run is safe and skiable, we will drop ropes immediately. 

Here’s what Vail’s COO, Chris Jarnot, had to say about openings: “We are very close to being able to open up much more additional terrain on mostly natural snow, and just need a bit more snow and, most importantly, cold temperatures to allow our snowmakers and groomers to fill in a few ditches, holes and gaps to connect everything together safely.  Ski Patrol will be evaluating trails every day, and we will open up as much additional terrain as we can, as soon as we can open it safely for all of our guests.  Keep your fingers crossed for continued snow and for cold temperatures, and we’ll get there soon.” 

Skiing and riding will be offered from Gondola One, Born Free Express Lift (#8), the Eagle Bahn Gondola and Little Eagle Lift (#15) beginning at 9 a.m. Friday, November 22nd. Until more terrain opens, all of Vail Mountain is considered a slow zone. Please me in control and considerate of others.
