“This is the first time we’ve been able to open both resorts early in more than 10 years. We owe a big thank you to our mountain operations teams for their hard work in making this possible for our loyal guests and season pass holders.” said Doug Lovell, Vail chief operating officer.
Beginning on Wednesday skiers and boarders will have access to the following lifts and more than 500 acres of skiable terrain on Vail Mountain while over at Beaver Creek guests will be treated to more than 220 acres!
