After receiving 7” of new snow in the last 24 hours and 12” in the last 48 hours, we are excited to announce that Rose Bowl Express Lift (#4) will begin operations on Thursday, accessing additional intermediate and advanced terrain in that area and bringing the total skiable acres to 513.

On Saturday, four additional chairlifts will open, including Strawberry Park Express Lift (#12), Riverfront Express Gondola (#7), Upper Beaver Creek Mountain Express Lift (#18), and Lower Beaver Creek Mountain Express Lift (#15). Downloading will be required on Lower Beaver Creek Mountain Express Lift (#15) to access The Landing, shuttle system, and parking lots. The additional terrain opening associated with these lifts will provide skiing access between Beaver Creek Village and Bachelor Gulch and will provide guests with more than 600 skiable acres of terrain.

All guests are reminded that they must observe all posted signs and closures, especially during the early-season. Closed trails may contain hazards due to early snow coverage. Accessing closed terrain is a violation of the Colorado Ski Safety Act and will result in the loss of skiing privileges and could involve prosecution and a fine.
