Ever Vail Moves Ahead

By | Vail Real Estate | No Comments

The proposed Ever Vail project has now gotten approval after three years of meetings. The Vail Town Council approved amendments to the town’s master plan last Tuesday. The amendments will guide the town and Vail Resorts Development Company as they continue to hammer out plans for the billion dollar project. There is still no timetable to start construction, as Vail is waiting for a turn in the national economy, but the new project will add quite a bit to the last piece of property on Vail Mountain’s front side. There are 21 total buildings planned between Lionshead and Cascade Village, 102 hotel rooms, 380 condominiums, a grocery store and other retail shops, 1,500 new parking spaces and best of all, a new gondola.

Colorado Ski Resort set to open October 8th

By | Vail Real Estate | No Comments

Wolf Creek Ski Area in southwest Colorado says it plans to open for skiing Saturday and Sunday, after a storm left three feet of snow. Resort Vice President Rosanne Pitcher said Thursday that ski area officials will probably decide Saturday whether to keep going for the rest of the season. Pitcher says this is the earliest Wolf Creek has offered skiing. She says resort officials are still deciding exactly what will be open this weekend, but the plan is to offer three lifts and about 600 acres with a lift ticket price of $33. Loveland was the first ski area to start the season in Colorado last year when it opened for daily operations Oct. 24. Vail Mountain plans to open November 18th, with Beaver Creek following on its traditional opening on the day after Thanksgiving.
