Vail ski mountain opens with at least one run (we hope for more!) on Friday November 19th. Snow is expected most of this week, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. For opening weekend, the Antlers at Vail lodge is offering a Vail lodging special $168 rate on all Studio suites and One Bedrooms. They all have mountain views and a full kitchen. There will also be giveaways and a band, called the Big Gigantic, in Lionshead opening weekend.
