No snow means no go for Vail

VAIL ” Vail Mountain’s opening has been delayed until Wednesday because of a lack of snow.

The mountain was supposed to open Friday.

Little natural snow has fallen at Vail, and warm temperatures have limited snowmaking.

“The quality of surface is not where we wanted it to be,” Vail Mountain spokeswoman Jen Brown said.

Mountain officials had hoped to open the Born Free run Friday on manmade snow.

Workers started making snow at Vail on Nov. 1.
