The Snow Keeps a Comin’ in Vail

Who would have thought the snow fall this early in the season would be this EPIC? Vail has received over five feet of snow since December 14. The storms continue to hit the Vail Valley and continue to live up to Colorado Champagne Powder snowfalls. If you haven’t booked your ski vacation, NOW is the time to do it!

Now that you have your accommodations booked, get ready for some of the best snow Vail Mountain has seen early season in years if not decades. All of Vail is open with the exception of some of the terrain parks and terrain features. Blue Sky Basin opened weeks ago with the huge storms that pushed through our valley,dumping feet of snow. Powder skies have been the equipment choice for the past two weeks….and if you’re still trying to ski on long skinny skies from the 1980’s, do yourself a favor and head to your favorite ski shop to rent a pair of fat skies. You’ll wish you would have jumped on the new ski technology years ago. Equate skiing on old technology skies to still using a flip phone versus a smart phone…you can accomplish a lot more with ease from the assistance of new technology.

All of the snow that has fallen in the Vail Valley is not the only big headline as of late, the 2015 FIS World Alpine Ski Championships is an international ski event taking place February 2nd – 15th in Beaver Creek. The world of alpine skiing will embark on the Vail Valley, from athletes, media, sponsors, spectators and countless volunteers for two weeks to make these races happen without a hitch. Be sure to book your vacation rental now, this will be an event not miss. Vail’s own Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin will be skiing on hometown snow along with men’s favorites, Ted Ligety and Bode Miller. Both of these men are always exhilarating to watch on the Birds of Prey course in Beaver Creek. Ted Ligety has won the Birds of Prey Giant Slalom the past five years! The Men’s Giant Slalom will sure to be a race you will not want to miss. Plan ahead to arrive at the grand stand in plenty of time to stake out your seat and walk around the sponsor tents. This is going to be some amazing people watching at the grand stands, with fans from all over the world sporting their colors, cow bells and flags.
