Ski Season Has Officially Begun!
Vail Ski Resort officially kicked off the 2023-2024 ski season on November 10, 2023. This marks the Vail’s earliest opening date since 1998. The mountain’s 62nd ski season is expected to be a sensational one! Ski conditions are excellent, thanks to a variety of cold snaps and Vail’s expert grooming. We are excited to share that the mountain has already accumulated more than 30 inches of snow! Vail Daily reports: “The ski area opened with an 18-inch mid-mountain base and the Ramshorn and Swingsville runs available from Chair 4. Both of the Ramshorn access points were open and groomed, with the Powerline side of the run offering a less-traveled option.” Ski conditions will only improve as the season progresses.
