Parts of Back Bowls, Blue Sky to open at Vail this week

VAIL, Colorado - Vail Mountain said Wednesday that parts of Blue Sky Basin and the Back Bowls will open later this week.

On Thursday, Chairs 17 and 21 (Yonder side of 17, Poppyfields, Shangri La, Chop Stix on 21) will open to skiers. On Friday, Blue Sky Basin Chairs 37 and 39 (Big Rock Park and additional terrain under 39) will start turning.

"Please obey all signs and closures and do not cut ropes," Vail Mountain said in its Facebook post. "This is for your safety, variable conditions will exist, and we thank Ski Patrol for working hard to open new terrain when it is safe to do so. Keep an eye on the forecasts, more snow can mean new terrain."
