VAIL, Colo. (AP) — Colorado’s Vail Mountain ski area will open 70 acres (28.3 hectares) of terrain to skiers and riders on Friday. Thanks to a newly expanded snowmaking system, the resort will start the new season atop Gondola One with the Swingsville and Ramshorn runs, a beginner skiing area over at Golden Peak, as well as runs surrounding Chair 4.

Vail Mountain Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Beth Howard says the expanded snowmaking makes an entirely new early-season terrain package available to customers this year.

New for this season, Vail will open skiing and riding out of Vail Village, with upload and download access to the Mid-Vail area via Gondola One.
