Vail's new snowmaking guarantees November 15, 2019 opening day

Exciting news coming from Vail Resorts this season! Wax your skis and boards because a Vail Mountain opening day of November 15, 2019 has been guaranteed! There is no better time to plan your Vail family vacation or a romantic getaway in the mountains. 

According to a press release from Vail Resorts their extensive snowmaking upgrades have ensured a pre-Thanksgiving opening day each year going forward. This is great news for travelers looking to come to Vail, Colorado, earlier in the season. For the next couple of years, Vail will be adding nearly 200 acres of new and advanced snowmaking terrain allowing earlier access to higher elevation terrain, improved early-season ski school terrain, and top-to-bottom skiing.

Early season travelers will not be the only group that benefits, visitors exploring the option of visiting a Vail Village Ski Resort in April will be happy to learn that this new snowmaking will help ensure better conditions later in the season. Construction of this new technology has been on-going this summer. For the upcoming 2019-20 season new snowmaking will effect the following runs: Swingsville Ridge, Swingsville, Meadows, Ramshorn, Bear Tree, Cold Feet, part of Upper Lion’s Way, Lodgepole, Coyote Crossing, Practice Parkway, Ledges, and improvements in the beginner zone Gopher Hill Lift. Grab your passes here and we'll see you on the slopes.
