March is Shaping Up to Be a Great Month for Skiing At Vail & Beaver Creek!

By Caitlin Row | Tuesday, March 5, 2019

When visiting Vail this winter, Colorado Snowsports Museum is a must-see for enthusiasts from near and far. 

It features an exhibit of the beloved 10th Mountain Division, mountain troops who trained up here during World War II; the Colorado Snowsports Hall of Fame; and lots of information on Colorado's many ski resorts.

Love fashion? Check out its rotating collection of ski and snowboard clothing – 100 Years of Ski Fashion and Function. According to Colorado Snowsports Museum's website, "Take a step back in time, courtesy of the fashions that accompanied the evolution of Colorado’s ski industry, from the 1910s to the 2000s."

And with that, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week. (Click here for the 10-day weather forecast; more snow is on the way!)
