Springtime in Vail is unlike any other, filled with special moments on and off the mountain. Starting your day on the mountain, you and your loved ones won’t waste any time once you see the new snowfall and feel the warm sun. With 5,289 acres of skiable terrain, Vail boasts some of the most renowned runs in the world. And that’s not to mention the incomparable Back Bowls, with wide-open swaths of fresh powder for you and your family to explore. 

Off the mountain, the first stop is après. You can enjoy a delicious cocktail from one of Vail’s many esteemed après spots, while basking in the sunshine during these spring months. 

Endless fun awaits in the villages. With abundant shopping and a variety of entertainment options, you can feel a certain energy in the air in town. It feels like another world, yet like you’re right at home, all at once. It ignites your curiosity and fuels your sense of adventure.

Just as the atmosphere inspires you, so will the world-class dining scene. Whether you’re a pizza purveyor or fine-dining aficionado, dining in Vail is second to none, with options for every palate. To put a cap on an already incredible day, stroll the cobblestone streets and make your way to one of the ice rinks in town to skate under the stars. It’s the perfect finish to a spring day that’ll undoubtedly inspire traditions.
