Vail, Colorado is one of the best locations for spring break trips. Many people are looking for a warm beach to escape to after a cold winter, while many others are looking for a ski vacation. Vail is truly the best of both worlds during the springtime. Overnight temperatures may still dip into the low 20’s. Daytime temperatures can reach well into the 50’s. At an altitude of 8,000 feet, 50 degrees is certainly t-shirt weather. The town comes alive with many visitors and locals ready for spring festivities.
Spring is one of the best times of the year to go skiing in Vail. Mid-day skiing is usually the warmest and best time to be on the hill as morning temperatures can still be very cold. The weather can still get a little nasty in the spring with heavy snowfall and surprise Vail with a nice powder day.
Skiing in warmer weather has many advantages. Layering is not as much of a problem as it is on days when the wind chill will be in the negative numbers. This makes skiing more enjoyable for everyone. Another reason is that softer snow is much easier to ski on compared to the icier conditions. Not only is this safer for beginner skiers, but also is easier to learn the sport.
