Vail Opens Blue Sky Basin for the 2018-2019 Season

After receiving more than 6 feet so far this season and more in the forecast through the weekend, Vail Mountain opened Blue Sky Basin on Thursday, November 29th. This is the second-earliest opening for Blue Sky Basin in history, behind only the November 25, 2002 opening. Vail is now offering 4,200 skiable acres of terrain, the most currently open in North America.

"There is no doubt that Vail is the place to be for the holidays. We have almost 80 percent of the resort’s terrain open, and it is still November," said Doug Lovell, Vail chief operating officer. "This is the strongest start to a season that we’ve seen in decades, and it is only looking to improve with more snow expected over the weekend. This is going to be a legendary season."
