NORTH AMERICA'S LARGEST

SNOWMAKING ENHANCEMENT PROJECT

YOU ONLY GET ONE START TO THE SEASON. AND IN VAIL, WE DON'T TAKE EARLY SEASON LIGHTLY. WITH 496 ACRES SNOWMAKING, AND THE LARGEST SNOWMAKING ENHANCEMENT PROJECT IN NORTH AMERICA, NEITHER WILL YOU.

Construction Progress

Follow the progression of Vail’s new snowmaking enhancements as we take you behind-the-scenes of this ambitious new project. From enhancing our existing snowmaking system to expanding snowmaking on the upper-mountain, Vail's teams will be undertaking the most significant snowmaking enhancement project in North America over the next three years.

This early season will be the best yet with:

  More than 500 acres of snowmaking infrastructure.
  Additional terrain accessible from Mountain-Top express, including runs Swingsville and Ramshorn.

 
“We’re excited to be able to move forward and begin construction this summer on the first phase of this plan, which will provide a more predictable opening date, high-quality conditions during the early- and mid-season, and more reliable conditions through mid-April.”

Vice President of Mountain Operations, Vail Mountain
