President's Day Weekend is behind us, and snow continues to fall. A snowy Monday and Tuesday (February 19 and 20) resulted in an early week powder day (and lots of snowy roads).
February is the month that keeps giving after a decidedly dry December and January. I'm happy to report beautiful conditions at Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Resort right now!
This is the best it has been so far, and it keeps getting better. Those who love Vail and Beaver Creek but haven't visited yet this season should consider a spring ski vacation.
At the time of this writing, even more snow is predicted for Thursday, Friday and Sunday (February 22, 23 and 25). Cold weather in the 20s and 30s is predicted through the weekend. Keep checking back for the most up-to-date weather predictions by clicking here.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
