Vail Mountain Snowmaking Expansion Project, Re-imagining Early-Season

Jun. 6, 2019

During summer 2019, Vail Mountain will begin construction on the first phase of a multi-year snowmaking expansion project that will result in a more predictable opening date, high-quality conditions during the early- and mid-season, and more reliable conditions through mid-April. The resort will improve its existing snowmaking system and expand snowmaking on the upper-mountain, resulting in 192 acres of new and enhanced snowmaking infrastructure for the 2019-2020 winter season, and allowing the resort to open terrain accessible from both Vail Village and Lionshead Village base areas. For 2019-2020, new snowmaking capabilities will be implemented on Swingsville Ridge, Swingsville, Meadows, and Ramshorn, located in the Mid-Vail area of the mountain; Bear Tree, Cold Feet, a portion of Upper Lion’s Way, and Lodgepole in the area of the Avanti Express Lift (#2); Coyote Crossing, Practice Parkway, and Ledges in the Eagles Nest area; and beginner enhancements in the Gopher Hill Lift (#12) area.
