Winter is nearly upon us, and cold weather sports fanatics everywhere are celebrating. ‘Tis the season for snow, mountains, and adrenaline, and though it’s still November, we’re looking ahead to the first upcoming seasonal events.
Vail – Colorado’s ski and snowboarding mecca – is featuring two of the biggest early season events in the country. If you’re unfamiliar with Vail, it’s nothing short of a ski resort wonderland, modeled after the fairytale ski resorts of Europe. Pete Seibert and Early Eaton founded the resort in the 1960s, and credit the inspiration for Vail to their time serving abroad during WWII.
Vail is more than just skiing or snowboarding, it’s an entire experience. The resort itself is massive and features hundreds of bars, restaurants, and shops. In fact, there’s so much to do, it’s an incredible place to visit any season of the year. If winter sports are your hobby, then you’ll definitely want to take a trip to Vail in the wintertime.
So, if you’re anxiously awaiting an opportunity to whiz down the slopes, surround yourself with snowcapped mountains, and partake in festivities, Vail is offering two unique events in the coming months.
Winter Kickoff Event – Vail Snow Daze
This is, by far, the largest early-season mountain back in North America. Vail Snow Daze is a chance to enjoy the fresh tracks on the mountain by day, and partake in lively festivities by night. This year the festival is happening from December 9 – 11. Join other avid ski and snowboarders as you leave your mark on the slopes. Enjoy free live concerts every single evening, and by day check out the sponsor expo village. The expo village is an opportunity to update your gear, discover new brands, and maybe even pick up a holiday gift or two.
A Weekend Just For Women – SKADI VAIL
Skadi, the literal the name of the Norse goddess of winter, is a ski festival by, and for, women. From December 14 – 16, females from around the globe will gather in Vail for an epic weekend of all things skiing. Participants will be treated to customized on-mountain guided experiences, evening VIP events, and female-specific ski equipment demos. This event is open to all ski skill levels. Skadi Fest is truly unlike any other ski event on the planet.
It’s your time to shine on the slopes! Whether you’re interested in Vail Snow Daze or SKADI VAIL, undoubtedly you’ll have the time of your life making memories you’ll never forget. Vail is full of exquisite hotel and lodges, but the Tivoli Lodge stands out among the crowd. Luxurious, charming, cozy and conveniently located, the Tivoli Lodge will enhance any Vail experience. Situated between the vibrant Vail Village, and Golden Peak, a bustling ski portal onto Vail Mountain, The Lodge is positioned in the ideal location – steps from the action, but removed enough to offer plenty of Rocky Mountain serenity.
Don’t hesitate to purchase tickets for the aforementioned events, as they tend to sell out in advance! Enjoy the slopes and drink a cup of hot cocoa for us!
