Known by day for endless bowls filled with champagne powder, Vail comes alive on weekends and holiday weeknights throughout the season. Starting December 11, we celebrate with an annual Snow Daze festival. This year will be exciting and better than ever, as national recording artists from around the country will transform our quaint villages into a bustling outdoor venue for live music and fun.
Visitors may also want to consider visiting during women’s ski week in January, or celebrate Mardi Gras in February as special events and good pricing at local luxury hotels and properties can be found. Don’t forget to come back and soak up the sunshine and endless bluebird days of March when the Burton U.S. Open visits the city for six exciting days of competition. Many U.S. Olympic athletes and pro riders will be here competing for hundreds of thousands in prize money.
In its seventh year Vail will also be offering another value-oriented season ski pass good at all of its resorts from around the world. New this year, skiers and riders with an Epic pass can ski in Australia at newly acquired Perisher ski resort. The Epic pass is known in the ski industry as one of the best values and offers unrestricted access to Vail or Beaver Creek. Based on current window ticket prices, if you will ski 10 days or more this year the pass will pay for itself. As a holder of the Epic pass you may also find some additional offerings in your email. Vail is currently promoting and discounting any resort owned property by 30 percent if you book your stay prior to opening day. As usual some restrictions may apply, but if you need further assistance or friendly advice, call your friendly local, Chris McDonnell of Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties Vail, anytime.
