Throughout opening weekend, both American Eagle and Excelerator chairlifts and the Easy Rider surface lift will service Main Vein, Rhapsody, Ptarmigan and Easy Rider trails for top-to-bottom skiing and riding, plus Woodward Coppers Eagle Jib Park, located off of the top of the American Eagle chairlift.

Celebrity contributors will let you in on their favorite spots on the mountain, insider information and some of their favorite jokes to keep chairlift rides entertaining.
