It's Presidents' Day Weekend! Start Planning Your Trip

By Caitlin Row | Monday, February 11, 2019

The long Presidents' Day Weekend is on the horizon, and that means lots of fun is coming our way! Plus, Valentine's Day is Thursday, February 14. It's going to be a weekend of romance for many.

More snow is on the way, too. At the time of this writing, I'm seeing snow predictions every day through Saturday, February 16, and more coming next week. That's great news for skiers and snowboarders planning to hit the slopes. Temperatures through the weekend will hover in the 40s. Click here for the 10-day forecast

Here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
