Vail Resorts Releases Projected Opening Dates


Vail Resorts Releases Projected Opening Dates

Mark Your Calendars & Let The Countdown Begin

The remaining days of summer are dwindling and it’s time to start switching gears to winter. This year, many ski areas are publishing their projected opening dates on social media in light of the uncertainty caused by Covid-19.

This translates to a loud, resounding, “Yes, we will be opening this season. Dust off the gear and make your plans. We’ll see you on the slopes.”

In fact, this is causing a lot of resorts on both coasts to follow suit and share their projected opening dates publicly – a practice usually only done publicly by western ski areas.

Last week, Vail Resorts announced its new Epic Passholder reservations policy, in which passholders must reserve their day on the slopes up to a week in advance.

So, it’s only appropriate to start planning (even if you can’t lock in your days just yet. Read more on the policy here.)

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