Vail for all seasons: Why any time of year is the perfect time to plan a trip to Vail


There’s no such thing as a bad time to visit Vail. So much is happening year-round, from early season specials to holiday events, spring bluebird skiing, summer adventures, and more. No matter when you visit, you can’t go wrong.

Every season offers unique experiences and advantages. Take a look at what we offer, check your calendar, and start planning!

Early Season Skiing At Vail

Early season

The snow is new and soft. The slopes are quiet. And early season lodging deals abound before mid-December.

Come sneak in some early turns before the holiday revelers get to town and you won’t regret it.

Early season is also a great time for kids and adults to enroll in Ski & Snowboard School. Class sizes tend to be smaller, and there’s plenty of terrain for learning.

The second week of December brings Snow Daze, the nation’s largest early-season party with a huge expo and free concerts every night!


Holidays

HolidazeTwinkling lights. Soft blankets of snow. World-class dining and shopping.

Nothing says “holidays” like Vail Village in December. Vail Family Holidaze is a popular festival with ice-skating performances by world-champion skaters, tree lighting, the New Year’s Eve Torchlight Ski Down and fireworks.

Plus, in between the New Year’s Eve partiers and the Martin Luther King Day long weekenders lies two weeks of prime vacation opportunity.

Beat the rush by buying your Epic 7 Day or Epic Day Pass online.

 When you buy online (at least 7 days in advance domestically and 14 days internationally) you’ll get the guaranteed lowest price – and you can skip the lines at the ticket window!


Spring skiing

Spring at Vail means plenty of sunshine, warmer temps and bluebird days. There's nothing quite as relaxing as enjoying great food and drinks on a warm deck in the mountains in springtime.

The skiing is great too, especially when you consider the late-season storms that tend to bestow a few last-minute powder days. So bring your sunscreen and your goggles!

Don’t miss the Spring Back to Vail events in April, which include free live concerts, après parties, giveaways, and the infamous World Pond Skimming Championships.


Summer and fall

After the snow melts, the mountain comes alive with hiking and biking trails, fly fishing, scenic Gondola rides, whitewater rafting, golf, summer happy hour celebrations, and so much more.

Adventure Ridge is like a high-alpine amusement park on the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, offering climbing, tubing, disc golf and a heart-stopping Zip Runner high-speed cable ride.

Check the Vail events calendar for art and culinary festivals, sporting events, guided tours and music offerings throughout the summer and fall.
