It's going to be a busy week around the Vail Valley, with two big events on the books: Vail Film Festival and Taste of Vail. So let's eat, drink and support independent films this weekend!
Weather this week will be a true springtime mix, with wind, rain, snow and sunshine all in the forecast. Temperature highs will hover mostly in the 50s. Predictions can be erratic so check back for more accurate reports here as the weekend nears.
Hint for the weekend: Dress in layers, consider the weather when picking footwear (boots might be best!) and enjoy all that Vail Valley has to offer.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
