Hallelujah the snow gods have spoken, and Vail Mountain's season is extended!!!
Since its closing last Sunday, Vail Mountain has received 2 feet of snow, leaving many locals and die hard skiers mourning the premature ending to what has been an incredible season. "This is a great way to end out 50th anniversary season," says Chris Jarnot, SVP and COO at Vail Mountain. "This is an opportunity for our season pass holders and skiers from around the region to take advantage of a few extra days, enjoying more sping skiing we all love here in Colorado."
Breckenridge will also reopen for the weekend.
So let the spring skiing continue and enjoy a safe, powder filled weekend! What a gift!
