“We are looking good and more snow in the forecast for next week will allow us to open even more terrain,” said Maggie Meisinger with Vail Resorts told CBS4’s Matt Kroschel.

Vail Mountain opened its back bowls Saturday and has expanded terrain to include portions of Sun Down Bowl and beginner terrain accessed via Sourdough Express.

Skiers and snowboarders currently have access to nearly 1,500 skiable acres right now.

Elsewhere in the high country resorts told CBS4 they were pleased with the Thanksgiving holiday and that snow fell just in time to allow them to open enough runs for all the visitors converging in resort towns.
