The Sun Down Bowl, Sun Up Bowl and China Bowl are now open on the back side of Vail Mountain.
The early-season openings mean that three of Vail’s seven Legendary Back Bowls are now open.
Game Creek Bowl is open; Blue Sky Basin is also open as of 12/4/2014. Lots of terrain opening up very early; this 2014 ski season is looking good!
Photo taken on the ridge between Game Creek Bowl and Sun Down Bowl. Snow was a little icy today (first day of December, 12/1/2014) due to sunny conditions and a lack of new snow. More snow is expected in Vail on Wednesday (update: did not materialize), although as my father always says: you can’t predict the weather.
