In PCMR’s first season under Vail ownership, three lifts and six runs will be open for visitors on the first weekend of skiing.
The three lifts opening this weekend will be PayDay, First Time and 3 Kings. 3 Kings Lift accesses lower 3 Kings park and other terrain features. PayDay offers access to beginner and intermediate terrain and First Time offers access to beginner terrain.

From 1-3 p.m., Tony Holiday & The Velvetones are scheduled to play an outdoor show in the resort plaza, pending a predicted snowstorm.
"The Plan A location will be outside in the resort plaza," Miller said. "But if it’s snowing like it should be, it might be moved inside."
