With Vail’s extensive snowmaking, early season is a sure bet, yet often Mother Nature lends a hand, and opening day until the Christmas can feature some of the best, uncrowded skiing and boarding of the season.

The lifts open for 2020-2021 on Friday, November 20. 2020.

Vail Snow Daze is the signature kick-off event to the season, returning December 2020, welcoming free live music, wellness and transformation opportunities, family-friendly happenings, a sponsor expo village and more.
