Colorado and Utah Resorts drive Vail Resorts

By | Vail Real Estate, Vail Summer Events, Vail Winter Events | No Comments

By the numbers 62 cents: Per-share dividend, payable April 15, a 50 percent increase. 15.9 percent: Growth in skier visits across the company over the previous year. 15.7 percent: Growth in revenue per available lodging room over the previous year. Vail will see a new chairlift and the start of Epic Discovery summer program thanks to the success of Vail Resorts with strong second quarter growth reports.  Revenue is up for Vail Resorts in pass sales, lodging, ski schools and restaurants. Thanks to Vail Resort’s “geographic diversification”, poor snowfall in Tahoe has been supplemented by their Colorado and Utah resorts. More benefits Vail will receive from Vail Resort’s success includes replacing Avanti lift at Vail with a 6 man chair and improving snow blowing at Beaver Creek.  Another $10 Million will be spent on Vail’s summer program, Epic Discovery.  Vail will get a mountain coaster, canopy tours and a summer tubing area.

Forest Service approves most of Vail Mountain summer expansion proposal

By | Vail Events, Vail Summer Events | No Comments

Vail Mountain’s summer expansion proposal took another step toward reality last week. U.S. Forest Service released the final environmental impact statement and the draft record of decision for Vail Resorts’ first-of-its-kind summer activities proposal, Epic Discovery at Vail Mountain. “Epic Discovery will make the national forest more accessible and engaging and will also create jobs in our community and contribute positively to the local economy,” said Chris Jarnot, senior vice president and COO of Vail Mountain, in a news release. The Forest Service approved all of the resort’s proposed new features except one of the alpine coasters and the permanent wedding venue. In the draft decision document, which will become final in October after a 45-day objection period, White River National Forest supervisor Scott Fitzwilliams wrote,“I believe that our national forests are neither amusement parks nor circus attractions.
