Vail Resorts Announces Opening Dates for 2021-22 Season


Vail Resorts Announces Opening Dates for 2021-22 Season

Let The Countdown & Snow Dances Commence

Summer isn’t technically over until September 21st. But Vail Resorts has published some other calendar dates to keep our eyes on. Vail has announced projected opening dates at all of their North American properties for the upcoming 2021-2022 skiing and riding season.

All of these dates are subject to change and based on weather and snow conditions permitting. But if Vail’s crystal ball is accurate, folks could be hitting the slopes as early as October at Keystone! And Vail Mountain’s target date of November 12th would be the earliest in decades. Did Old Man Winter slip Vail some secrets we don’t know about? Let’s hope so!

Does Vail Mountain’s Early Projected Opening Dates Hint At What’s In Store This Winter? Or just Wishful Thinking?

Take a look at the entire list of Vail Resorts’ projected opening dates.
