What’s New at Liberty Mountain?

Liberty Mountain Resort is continuing to develop a year round oasis for all who love the outdoors. Below is a look at our current resort enhancements, as well as an overview of some projects taking place in the near future.

Liberty Mountain Snowmaking System Upgrades

December 2019 — Our snowmaking system keeps getting more powerful! With multiple improvements in place, our goal is to be able to open earlier and with more terrain than ever before. In addition, we also hope to move up the historic start date for snow tubing operations at Boulder Ridge! The core of our upgrade is the installation of a new pumphouse adjacent to the main snowmaking pond. With 3 pumps and a 36 inch intake line, we will be able to increase our water flow to the mountain from 4,500 to 6,500 gallons per minute. Increasing the water flow and pressure will benefit every gun on the mountain, allowing us to make snow across the entire mountain faster.

In addition, we have replaced older snowmaking pipes on Whitney’s Way and have installed additional pipe in the First Class area to handle this added water capacity. We have also installed new state-of-the-art fan guns and low-energy snowguns in various locations.

By improving system reliability and increasing our system’s pumping power and water capacity, we will be able to better take advantage of favorable early-season temperatures, as well as snowmaking weather windows throughout the season.

Liberty Mountain is Now Epic

September 2019 — Liberty Mountain is now part of the Vail Resorts family of resorts! Vail Resorts' mission to provide an 'Experience of a Lifetime' goes hand in hand with our commitment to provide all guests with exceptional hospitality and service, whether visiting to enjoying winter sports, a dream wedding, a golf outing or a productive corporate retreat. For our snow lovers, the Epic Pass offers access to 37 resorts across the US, Canada, Australia, and many other resort partners across the globe!

The purchase by Vail became final at the end of September, so our resort will not notice many additional changes until winter of 2021. We are very excited for the Epic adventure ahead.
