Season will extend to May 1
VAIL, Colo. – March 7,2022 – Vail Mountain will extend the ski and snowboard season until May 1, making this the longest continuous season in Vail Mountain history. Thanks to the mountain’s investment in snowmaking, passholders and guests will be able to enjoy one additional week of legendary spring skiing and riding. The extended week will provide more value to passholders and guests, and is the perfect way for the local community to end an amazing winter season.
“We are very excited to be offering our community and guests one additional week to ski and snowboard on Vail Mountain,” said Beth Howard, vice president and chief operating officer of Vail Mountain. “This extension is made entirely possible by the dedicated mountain staff who have worked to provide guests with an outstanding winter season. We are truly grateful for everyone’s hard work to open over 5,100 acres of terrain and for our longest season on record.”
In 2019, Vail Mountain invested in North America’s largest snowmaking enhancement project. This project was a decade in the making, revolutionizing the mountain’s early and late season. Despite challenging early-season weather conditions, the resort’s snowmaking efforts enabled a phenomenal ski and ride experience this year, building the base that will allow for this season extension. As always, terrain offerings will depend upon weather conditions.
Vail Mountain is currently 97-percent open and has received over 190 inches of natural snow for the season.
