At the time of this writing, the Vail Valley was blanketed in a rich snowfall that's certainly the best of the season ... so far.
It began snowing Monday morning, Vail Mountain reported 11 new inches Tuesday morning, and as of Tuesday afternoon the winter storm continued. More snow is on the horizon for this weekend. If a last-minute ski trip is possible this week or next, I highly recommend it. Conditions are vastly improved.
Temperature predictions are mild, in the 30s and 40s, this week. Snow is scheduled for Saturday, then again on Tuesday. Keep checking back for an up-to-date forecast.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
