February Ski Conditions in Vail and Beaver Creek Are Really Looking Up for President's Day Weekend

By Caitlin Row Stoner

Vail and Beaver Creek reported 4 and 5 fresh inches of snow respectively on Tuesday morning, February 13, after a weekend of falling fresh stuff. At the time of this writing, more snow is predicted for Thursday, February 15, then again early next week. It's President's Day Weekend, so visitors to the Vail Valley are truly blessed. We are seeing the best skiing of the year, so far.

Colorado's high country seems to be getting back on track with regular snowfall. We can all give a collective sigh of relief. February skiing is really looking up, and as snow continues to fall, we'll be positioned for some solid spring skiing. Now's the time to start planning your next ski trip! (Here's an insider's tip: Bridge Street Ski Haus offers quality demos and ski storage in Vail Village.)

Gore Creek Properties, which serves Vail, has some last-minute bookings available for President's Day Weekend.

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