Gondola operations at Vail and Beaver Creek to ramp down after holiday
Labor Day weekend marks the end of daily lift service at Vail and Beaver Creek. This weekend is a prime time to take advantage of the activities at Epic Discovery and Adventure Ridge, along with hiking and biking trails for various ability levels before reduced offseason hours take affect.
After Labor Day, Gondola One in Vail Village will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 6-29. The Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead will be open on from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 6-29. Epic Discovery activities will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. those same dates.
Beaver Creek will have the Centennial Lift open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays only from Sept. 7-29.
The views from either mountain during the fall foliage season offer great photo opportunities, so planning for some on-mountain activities while the leaves are at their peak is a good way to enjoy the gondolas on the weekend.
