Vail to open Legendary Back Bowls. Resort Opens Portions of Sun Up and Sun Down Bowls
Vail Mountain has opened its legendary Back Bowls, providing access to portions of Sun Up and Sun Down bowls via High Noon Express (#5) and Sun Up Express (#9). Vail is now offering 2,166 acres of skiable terrain, with more anticipated to open this week.
This marks the third time in the last decade that the Back Bowls have opened this early. In 2014, the Back Bowls opened on Nov. 26, in time for Thanksgiving, and in 2010, portions of the Back Bowls opened on Nov. 24. The earliest the Back Bowls have opened this century was on Nov. 16, 2002.
“We are excited to open a portion of the Back Bowls this early in the season and are thankful that we were able to provide that legendary experience for our Thanksgiving holiday guests,” said Doug Lovell, Vail chief operating officer. “Vail has had a strong start to the season, with a foot of snow in the last 48 hours and almost six feet of snow this season. We are definitely experiencing mid-winter conditions.”
Snowmass will open Thanksgiving Day for daily operations on 20 trails across 570 acres of terrain Thursday, Nov. 22.
Open terrain will include The Big Burn, Max Park, Powerline Glades, Sneaky’s Glades, Lunch line, Upper Scooper and Lower Hals to the bottom of Village Express. Elk Camp chair will provide access to Bull Run, Grey Wolf, Sandy Park, Bear Bottom, Gunner’s View and the Elk Camp Meadows Beginner area. Terrain will be accessed by the following chairlifts: Village Express, Sam’s Knob, Big Burn, Elk Camp Gondola, Elk Camp Lift, Meadows Lift, Sky Cab, Meadows Carpet and Treehouse Carpet.
“With over 500 acres of terrain open we are bound to have a great holiday weekend on the hill,” says Katie Ertl, senior vice president of mountain operations. “And with more snow in the forecast for opening day and later this week we will continue to open more terrain as conditions improve.”
Elk Camp restaurant and Sam’s Smokehouse will be open for the season, and Up 4 Pizza will be open Thursday, Nov. 22-Sunday, Nov. 25 until daily operations begin Dec. 6.
