More snow on tap for Vail, Beaver Creek this week

After a few inches of new snow late last week, the Vail Valley is once again looking at some winter-like weather this week as Vail and Beaver Creek head into the final few weeks of the 2016-17 ski season.

Season-concluding events like the Vail Film Festival are on tap for later this week (more on that in a separate post) and then foodie and music events like the Taste of Vail and Spring Back to Vail next month.

Beaver Creek closes for the season on Sunday, April 16, and Vail shuts down the lifts on Sunday, April 23.

And late-season festival-goers should be treated to some spring-like but decent snow conditions as a few more storms are on tap for this week, according to Opensnow.com meteorologist Joel Gratz.

“Snow will begin on Monday afternoon with one wave on Monday night into Tuesday morning, then another wave of snow should fall on Tuesday and Tuesday night, with deep amounts likely near and east of the divide on Tuesday night,” Gratz wrote Monday.

“Wednesday morning should offer the deepest powder near and east of the divide (10-20”). Then after a break on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday, the next storm should bring snow from Friday through Sunday morning, again favoring the mountains near and east of the divide.”

Despite some new snow late last week and into the weekend, temperatures remained very warm in the Vail Valley, which made for a very successful Pink Vail event on Saturday, raising record amounts of money for cancer treatment.

Hopefully (for those of us still seeking some powder turns), temperatures will drop a little for this week’s storms.
