Steady winds blowing from 50 to 60 mph forced Vail Mountain to close eight lifts on Saturday, Vail Mountain officials said.

Lifts were closed in Blue Sky Basin and China Bowl, said Jen Brown, Vail Mountain spokeswoman. Chair 17 was also closed and Chair 2, the Avanti lift, was closed in the morning, but reopened in the afternoon at a slower speed.
