Easter is a big holiday weekend around the Vail Valley. Guests are pouring into town, and that means lots of events are on tap.
Weather this week is a mix of sunshine, clouds, rain and snow (typical for Colorado's high country this time of year), so dress in layers.
Temperature highs will hover mostly in the 50s into next week. Click here for an up-to-date 10-day weather forecast. Morning rain and snow is currently on the books for Easter Sunday, April 1.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
