In the old days, after the snow melted at ski resorts, all that remained was grass, a gondola and the occasional alpine slide.
Colorado skiers and snowboarders will have a unique option when riding up the mountain at Beaver Creek this year.
Skiers and boarders heading up to the High Country now have more choices when it comes to hitting the slopes. Both Vail and Eldora ski areas opened on Friday.
The new gondola being constructed at Vail is not only offering luxury to skiers and boarders on their way up the mountain but it is also keeping the economy moving in Colorado.
