Many of us have xmas ski trips to CO and things are not as good as we hopped. With only 2 weeks to go, I’m wondering what to expect. Most ski areas in the region have less runs open now that last xmas. I’m hoping they are saving the slopes for the xmas rush. More snow is also expected this week.
A quick survey of data from Vail shows snowfall is a little ahead of last year.
Right now I’d estimate the Vail region has 15% open. I’m thinking there is a good chance that could go up to around 50-70% with nearly all blue/green runs open and a handful of blacks. Might need 30" of new snow to get to that point though?
I’m no expert, so I’m hoping others will chime in.
(no need to reply with tips to go to other regions… I would if I could)
