If you haven’t seen the news on social media or heard the word on the streets, I’ve got you covered. Keystone and Breckenridge both opened early this season. That is big news for Summit County. This has been the first time in a LONG time that any of the Vail Resorts actually opened earlier then the expected date. 11/7/18 was the lucky date and boy was it a treat for all the people living up here! I think it was the first opening day where I actually made it in time for spot in the main lot at keystone. . .even though I arrived after 10 am. But it gets even better. Free coffee and homemade granola bars awaited me as I waltzed onto the gondola without a care in the world. Opening day?! That is seriously unheard of!! I certainly enjoyed the change of pace 🙂
The good news with the early opening is both mountains opened with more terrain then usual so even the busy weekends are filled with great skiing and manageable lift lines. What does that mean for the winter? Well, for one we are off to a great start compared to last year. That makes for great conditions (November-April) for all of our guests coming for the early and late seasons. If you were waiting to see how the winter was looking before booking your trip. . I think it’s safe to say its going to be a good one! BOOK IT
