Vail Resorts announced today that all of its North American resorts and retail stores will remain closed for the 2019-20 winter ski season amidst the continued challenges associated with the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The decision follows the Company’s previously announced closure of its resorts from Sunday, March 15 through Sunday, March 22. The Company will consider reopening Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado, Heavenly Mountain Resort in Lake Tahoe and Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia in late April/early May, dependent on the situation with COVID-19 as well as weather conditions.

Why Ski Breckenridge?

We could talk about how Breckenridge annually receives one of the highest snow totals in Colorado, or about the fact that it claims the highest operating chairlift in North America, but the biggest reason Breckenridge Ski Resorts stands above the rest of the ski resorts in Colorado is because of its character. Situated among some of the tallest peaks in the Rockies, Breckenridge provides a unique skiing experience that overwhelms with its beauty. Additionally, the warm and welcoming nature of the people you’ll meet at Breckenridge will have you leave feeling like you made new friends. Breckenridge Ski Resort truly has something to offer for every age and ability, and we proudly proclaim it above (both literally and figuratively) any of the other ski resorts in Colorado.
