Vail, Beaver Creek set to open more ski terrain after most recent storm

November 29, 2016, 6:35 pm

Vail and Beaver Creek both saw more than a foot of new snow from the latest storm — on top of nearly two feet the week before — so mountain officials are opening additional terrain Wednesday at both resorts.

And more snow is on the way both later this week and at the beginning of next week, according to Opensnow.com:

“Most of the snow has accumulated from this storm, though a few more flakes are possible on Tuesday through Wednesday. Another system will bring light snow on Thursday into Friday, then our next storm will likely bring additional snow between Monday Dec 5 and Wednesday Dec 7th.”

And here’s the full press release from Vail Resorts on terrain openings:
