Beaver Creek gets going for the season under sunny skies; snow possible by weekend


Beaver Creek gets going for the season under sunny skies; snow possible by weekend

By Reid Griebling

November 25, 2009 —  It's opening day at The Beav today (Nov. 25), and we can expect clear skies and warm temps.

More of the same is in store for the remainder of the week as high pressure will dominate the mountains.

We have a shot at snow over the holiday weekend, but nothing that looks too impressive.

Our biggest storm of the season could show up around Dec. 4-5, just in time for the Birds of Prey World Cup races. And if history is any indicator, this storm could be the one to get our ski season going. Keep your fingers crossed.

In the meantime, head up to Beaver Creek today and enjoy the skiing and the chocolate chip cookies. Or head up to Vail, open since Friday, where the Vista Bahn cranks up Thursday along with top-to-bottom skiing from the Eagle Bahn Gondola.

Happy Thanksgiving.

My sources tell me that Chair 2 and Chair 12 could be turning as early as Friday, if snow making system can stay online.

Thanks for the update, Reid. Also just got a release from VR that pass restrictions will be in place Friday and Saturday. That means anyone holding a Merchant Pass, School Employee Pass, Guest Fee, Community Relations, or Colorado Pass can't ski at Vail or Beaver Creek unless they pay the day rate.

Hey Pre-dick-tor - get outta bed and tell us what terrain is open in Vail Saturday. Another gaper s-show sounds less than special.
Sassy Sally
