Vail announces opening dates

Okemo to open Saturday, Nov. 19

Vail Resorts announced the projected opening dates of its 37 North American resorts on Aug. 23, offering skiing and riding coast-to-coast and one of the longest seasons in the country for its Epic Pass holders. Additionally, the company shared it will limit lift ticket sales throughout the entirety of the 2022/23 season to prioritize the mountain experience for its guests.

Guests can enjoy more normal indoor operations this season as dining facilities will no longer require proof of Covid-19 vaccinations or dining reservations.

Mount Snow will open on Nov. 11, weather permitting, Okemo will open Nov. 19 and Stowe will open Nov. 18.

Lift tickets will be limited every day, across every resort, during the 2022/23 season in order to preserve the guest experience at each resort. Availability of lift tickets will be visible on resort websites in the coming weeks. If tickets are sold out online, guests will not be able to purchase them at ticket windows.

Passes, including Epic day passes, and pass holder benefit tickets will not be limited.

There is also no impact to guests who enroll in ski and ride school lessons that include lift access, or to employee and dependent pass access.

Skiers and riders have until Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 5) to lock in their Epic Pass before prices increase. Pass products, including regional passes and day passes, are available now on the Epic pass website.
