Vail opened the Back Bowls on Thursday, Dec. 15.
“What’s a better way to celebrate turning 60 than a BACK BOWL BIRTHDAY BASH! China Bowl, Tea Cup, Siberia Bowl and Sun Up Bowl are OPEN!” Vail posted on Facebook Thursday.
A new quad chairlift is still under construction in Sun Down Bowl, as well as a new six-pack lift in Game Creek Bowl. Both areas are still closed to snow riding, as is Chair 5 (High Noon Express) because it shares a base terminal area with the new Sun Down Express lift (Chair 17), which will deposit snow riders near the top of the new Game Creek Express (Chair 7).
Vail is now more than 60% open.
Blue Sky Basin also remains closed for now.
Vail has already received 119 inches of snow so far this season, with more reportedly on the way next week.
Here’s the official press release from Vail Resorts:
