This weekend VAIL MOUNTAIN and THE ELDORA SKI AREA have opened with limited trails. They are a little ahead of schedule this year and join A-BASIN AND LOVELAND SKI AREA which have been open for a few weeks now.
It was reported that overall ski revenue was down about 5% last year. So Vail and Eldora have opened early to help make up that shortfall. Helped by the early snowstorms that blew through Colorado earlier this season, these ski areas are calling all skiers to buckle up their boots and hit the slopes.
This year should offer some great ski and flight packages for all the winter vacationers. In addition to the skiing enjoyment, spend some time in Denver and Colorado Springs for shopping, enjoying a myriad of restaurants, and sightseeing. Who knows, if you catch the front range right you might even be able to get in a round or two of golf.
And let me tell you, at this altitude, with semi-frozen fairways, you will drive like Tiger Woods!
