7 Ways Your Ski Season Is About To Get Better
All across the country, resorts have been working hard to bolster their offerings and to fix systemic issues, from addressing long lift lines and the mountain-town housing shortage to investing in renewable energy. With the proper precautions, there are more reasons than ever to hit the slopes this season.
There's More Ground to Cover
Ski resorts spend years--decades even--building out their terrain. The wait is generally worth it, with new glades, bowls, and buttery runs to christen. This season in Colorado, Telluride is getting 40 new acres of beginner and intermediate terrain, including the Grouse Glades, while Beaver Creek will open 250 acres of easy skiing, with two quads and 17 new trails in the bowlish McCoy Park. Last February, Idaho's Sun Valley pulled the curtain back on 380 acres, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, many weren't able to ski it. This is your year.
