Vail Pass reopens following closure, heavy snow still hitting Vail
UPDATE 7:07 p.m. Vail Pass has reopened. Please drive carefully.
Interstate 70 over Vail Pass is closed for safety. A combination of a storm system from the Pacific Northwest and a trough of cold air from the north are expected to bring a fresh shot of winter to much of Colorado over the next few days.

More base areas open means more space for guests to disperse upon, even if those base area openings don’t translate into more actual terrain openings.
