Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Liftline status: At 9:20 a.m. liftlines were non-existant at Chair 8, and less than 5 mins at the Eagle Bahn Gondola.
Breakdown: With a couple inches of new snow overnight, Vail is not nearly as crowded as it would normally be on a Saturday that sees fresh snow, probably due to the fact that it’s so early in the season. Great day to explore around Vail and check out the new openings, which keep coming with every passing hour. There’s both groomers and ungroomed runs open now at Vail, definitely making it a better opening weekend than we’ve seen in the last couple years.
Snowcast: NOAA is reporting there’s chance of snow before 1 p.m. Sunday, then a chance of rain and snow between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and a chance of snow to follow after 3 p.m.
