February Arrives in Vail Valley with More Snow on the Horizon

By Caitlin Row Stoner

January has really flown by and now this weekend marks the start of a new month. Fingers crossed that February continues to bring lots of snow and skiable days to the Vail Valley. 

We're off to the right start. According to Weather.com, snow showers are predicted to begin on Friday and will likely last through Tuesday.

Temperatures will continue on the warmish side (think 40s), but especially up high we're sure to get some solid snowfall. Most of our back bowls are skiable thanks to January snow, and terrain is continuing to open.

With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
