Here's the Opening Day plan: three lifts will serve six runs, two terrain parks and a jump line. PayDay Chairlift will service beginner and intermediate terrain; with additional beginner terrain available via First Time Lift; while 3 Kings Lift will provide access to a jib set-up in lower 3 Kings park, beginner park in upper First Time, and a jump line on Quicksilver. 

Of course, this year's Opening Day marks our first day as part of the Vail Resorts family. The landmark day will include commemorative SWAG giveaways around the mountain and an events program beginning with season-opening remarks from the resort’s new Big Man on Campus, Chief Operating Officer Bill Rock. The Opening Day shred will be fed with free coffee, hot chocolate and donuts in the resort plaza beginning at 8:00 am.

Opening Day Event Program:
8:00 am: Free coffee, hot cocoa and donuts in resort plaza
8:50 am: Season-opening remarks delivered by Chief Operating Officer Bill Rock at bottom of PayDay Lift
9:00 am: PayDay, 3 Kings, First Time lifts open for season
