Vail Resorts Announces Proposed Terrain Expansion

Vail Resorts have revealed proposals to expand its Vail Mountain’s race and training terrain at Golden Peak. The proposed development would see an increase in the size of Vail Mountain’s operational boundary by 68 acres; this would include an additional 41 acres of trails, three surface lifts and new snowmaking infrastructure.

In addition to the proposed terrain expansion, Vail resort will be donating more than 11,000-square-foot parcel of land to Ski & Snowboard Club Vail. The club will use this land to renovate and enlarge their club house, office and training facility.

“Since Vail’s inception in 1962, ski racing has been a part of its heritage, and our partnership with Ski and Snowboard Club Vail in the development of future generations of athletes dates to the beginning of the resort as well,” said Chris Jarnot, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Vail Mountain…”there has never been a better time to expand our partnership by requesting approval from the USFS for the expansion and donating our land to allow the clubhouse upgrade to move forward.”

The proposal is subject to U.S. Forest Service approval and if approved in the near future, construction could potentially commence as early as this fall.
