However, Colorado could see some snow Thursday night, which would definitely make a difference to opening day.

Vail will open with 70-acres, two runs, Ramshorn and Swingsville, accessed via Chair 4. To get to Chair 4, riders will have to take Gondola One 2,000-feet up the mountain and will also have to download the gondola leave. Lifts will be loaded at full capacity.

Breck and Vail follow Wolf Creek (weekends only), Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and Keystone as Colorado’s open resorts.

The dawn of a new season…☀️
