This includes the entire front side of the mountain featuring three terrain parks and the 22’ superpipe, plus all seven of Vail’s legendary Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin. Corduroy seekers can find fresh groomed terrain on some of Vail’s signature black diamond runs on a weekly basis, with Riva Ridge groomed on Monday and Friday, Blue Ox on Tuesday and Saturday, Gandy Dancer on Wednesday, and The Slot on Thursday and Sunday.
Beaver Creek has received more than three feet of snow since Jan. 1, with all 1,832 acres of the resort’s terrain open this weekend for skiers and snowboarders. Beaver Creek Ski Patrol opened the remaining terrain in Stone Creek Chutes, as well as their signature Golden Eagle trail, groomed each Saturday. Guests can expect the double black diamond run, Golden Eagle, and the black diamond runs, Double Diamond and Helmut’s, to be groomed every Saturday morning for elevated corduroy skiing.
