Vail Resorts Announces Operating Plan & Opening Days for the 2020-21 Ski Season

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020 at 12:37pm.

The answer to one of summer's biggest questions has finally been answered. For months, we've been listening to rumors and speculation about what will become of the 2020-2021 ski season. With last season being cut short, many of us are dreaming of the day we can be back on the mountain to immerse ourselves in winter in the best possible way- on our skis or board with family, friends, or even solo. On Aug 27, Vail Resorts announced Breckenridge Ski Resort will open for skiing and riding on Nov 13, 2020 to passholders only and by reservation. Keystone Resort opens a bit earlier for passholders on Nov 6. Skiers without season passes will be able to ski starting Dec 7 by reservation only. In a letter from Vail Resorts CEO, Rob Katz, he states, "Given how fluid and ever-changing the situation with COVID-19 is, it has also been our goal to design an approach that can remain in place for all of this season. We do not want to be caught off guard or find ourselves needing to make reactionary changes." Face coverings and physical distancing will be required during all aspects including chairlifts and ski school. Katz goes on to say that at some point later in the season, it could be determined the reservation system is not needed at certain resorts. For details to your specific questions about the upcoming ski season, we suggest going straight to the source at and check out the FAQs page for more information. We hope this news makes your day as much as it did ours. We look forward to seeing you on the mountain this winter!
