Exciting things are happening here in the north end of the valley. The Forest Service has posted its final approval of the Teocalli Drainage Expansion. The resort’s former owners, the Mueller family, had submitted the Teocalli Drainage Project back in 2015, prior to the sale to Vail Resorts last fall.

The Teocalli Drainage Expansion Project would bring us 32 acres of new snowmaking, nine new intermediate trails and 500 acres of expanded skiing terrain in the Teocalli and Teocalli Two Bowls. It also includes plans for three new lifts, including the replacement of the North Face Lift. Our Ski Patrol would also receive a new outpost at the top of the North Face. The project would also add approximately 15 miles of new summer trails.

While the approval from the Forest Service is great news, Vail has not yet committed to the project. CBMR General Manager Tim Baker said in a recent press release that the company is looking forward to, “identifying how we will proceed with it.”
