Vail Mountain to open out of both Vail Village, Lionshead
VAIL — Vail Mountain announced Tuesday that the resort will open for the 2014-2015 season on Friday with access out of both Vail Village and Lionshead as well as return routes to both base areas. Vail will be announcing Wednesday the specific terrain and lifts available beginning Friday.
“We know that we’ll be opening both base areas, but we’re going to give our snowmakers, groomers and patrollers one more night to confirm exactly what we’ll be able to open on Friday morning for Vail’s opening day,” said Chris Jarnot, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Vail Mountain. “Stay tuned for an update tomorrow.”
Vail Mountain lifts will open at 9 a.m. beginning Friday throughout the early season to accommodate early-morning operations. Skiers and snowboarders are asked to observe all posted signs and closures, especially during the early season.
