Closing Weekend Arrives for Vail and Beaver Creek

By Caitlin Row | Monday, April 9, 2018

This past weekend the sky dumped lots of white stuff across the Interstate 70 mountain corridor, resulting in massive powder days. Ski season is officially ending on a high note this Sunday, April 15, for Vail and Beaver Creek. Get outside and enjoy what the mountains have to offer one last time!

Weather this week is a true springtime mix. Snow is predicted for Friday, April 13, then again on Saturday morning, April 14. Sunshine and highs in the low 50s are on tap for Sunday, April 15. Clouds, sunshine and wind are predicted for early next week.

It being closing weekend, I suggest checking out all the winter retail deals around the valley. Check out our shop list here. Eye Pieces is currently offering 40% off goggles and helmets. Pano in Vail Village is offering up to 50% off select women's clothing and accessories.

Sign up for a Root & Flower Art of Wine Tasting Class and learn to taste wine like a professional.
