Snow flies at Vail, Beaver Creek

By Tom Boyd

November 5, 2008 —  I love it when nature and mankind work together.

It doesn’t always happen like that.

It’s happening like that right now, however, at Vail and Beaver Creek. The skies are doing their part, bringing fluffy inches to the slopes this week. Teaming up for the task, Vail Resorts fired up the snowguns in preparation for opening Vail Nov. 21 and Beaver Creek Nov. 26.

Breckenridge has been firing away for a while now in preparation for a Nov. 8 opening, while Keystone is keyed up for Nov. 7 opening day.
