Vail expansion underway to create new freestyle competition, training venue on Golden Peak


Construction is underway on Golden Peak to create a new moguls course that will host training and competitions in the coming years.

The 5.4-acre expansion is part of the larger Golden Peak expansion project approved in 2019. While the ribbon was cut on the new lift and ski runs associated with the project in the 2019-20 season, this latest phase of the project saw some setbacks.

“There were some concerns that came up about the decision, about erosion and mudflow and sediment off Golden Peak,” said Leanne Veldhuis, the Eagle-Holy Cross District Ranger with the White River National Forest. “Since then, Vail Resorts has been working to resolve some of that.”
