Vail’s Chair 2 to open
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado – Vail Mountain’s Chair 2, the Avanti Express Lift, will open Friday, Vail Resorts officials said. Terrain will be limited, but skiers will have access to upper Avanti.
Vail has eight of 31 lifts running, with 170 of 5,289 acres open.
The forecast calls for snow every day through Monday, with a weekend storm expected to bring several inches of snow to the valley.
The acquisition extends a strategy of buying ski areas near big cities, with the hopes that local skiers will buy Epic Passes and visit the company’s owned and partner resorts across the country and world.
