VAIL, Colorado – Vail Mountain increased its open terrain Saturday with the opening of Chair 4, the Mountain Top Express.

Vail opened Chair 3, the Wildwood Express, on Friday, while Chair 2, the Avanti Express, opened Wednesday.

Some of the other popular open lifts include Cascade Village, Born Free Express, the Eagle Bahn Gondola and the Vista Bahn Express. The majority of the terrain open at the resort right now is beginner and intermediate terrain with packed powder conditions and some icy spots.
