DILLON – Vail Resorts has announced that Breckenridge Ski Resort, Heavenly Mountain Resort and Whistler Blackcomb will not reopen for spring skiing.
CEO Rob Katz made the announcement via a letter Thursday morning. He explained that all of the communities the company operates are focused on creating timelines and guidelines for summer reopening that will allow the elevators to run at the resorts in late June or early July. The company also placed accommodations and stores within the same timeframe.
Katz said the company plans to take the time for the reopening process and not everything can be opened at once as the company not only has elevators but also restaurants, wedding venues, shops and hotels. He said that standard procedures are still in progress and that each company will open according to “its own timetable”.
The Summit County Board of Health discussed the opening of spring ski resorts on Wednesday in connection with a request from the Arapahoe Basin Ski Area. County Manager Scott Vargo noted that Copper Mountain Resort has expressed an interest in opening for ski team training activities.
