VAIL -- With nearly a foot of new snow this weekend into Monday at Mid-Vail and prime snowmaking at lower elevations, Vail will open more lifts and terrain than first anticipated Friday, Nov. 19.

“The recent storms have been a huge help to our snowmaking and grooming crews who have been hard at work to provide our guests with the best opening day and early-season terrain offering we've seen in the last few years,” said Chris Jarnot, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Vail Mountain. “We're looking forward to getting the 2010-2011 season started and will provide additional updates over the next few days.”

Beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 19, snow riders at Vail will be able to access the mountain from both the Vail Village and Lionshead base areas through the Vista Bahn Express Lift (#16), the Born Free Express Lift (#8) and the Eagle Bahn Gondola (#19). Skiers and riders will also have access to the following lifts and portions of terrain in these areas:

* Avanti Express Lift (#2)
* Wildwood Express Lift (#3)
* Mountaintop Express Lift (#4)
* Little Eagle Lift (#15)

In all, 550 acres of skiable terrain will be available Friday. Additional lifts and terrain will open as conditions permit, and weather forecasters are calling for 8 to 16 inches of additional snow Tuesday into Wednesday, with a winter storm warning in effect for the central Rockies of Colorado.
