Snow flies at Vail, Beaver Creek
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.
The big event coming up (after opening day) is the Audi Birds of Prey men's World Cup races at Beaver Creek December 4-8, December 4-8, www.bcworldcup.com
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new on our slopes this year.
Vail: A new SKImmersion program that treats and trains you like an Olympic skier. Plus, more than $2 billion in renovations from the new spa at the Lodge at Vail to the new Arrabelle at Vail Square.
Beaver Creek: A new children’s ski and snowboard school center, The Ranch, with a high-tech food ordering system and a children’s gondola. Plus, the debut of a new RockResort called The Osprey.
