Happy Valentine’s Day and President’s Weekend and the Vail CarniVail Mardi Gras celebration! Vail got nearly 20 inches of snow last week and more than 9 inches overnight. It isn’t too late to gather up your skis, board and sweetheart to take advantage of great ski conditions and a long weekend. Fresh snow is what it is all about at the Vail Colorado ski resort! And after a day on the slopes take a dip in the hot tub or warm up with a sauna. Then stop in the Altitude Billiards & Sports Club to watch the 2010 Olympic Games on a wall of HD TVs or the giant screen. The Altitude Club is Vail’s favorite sports bar. Avoid the traffic back to Denver (what’s the rush anyway?) have dinner and stay an extra night so you can drive refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning. This Vail hotel offers terrific mid-week rates to guests who stay Saturday night; get the best rate guarantee when you call or book direct on the Lodge website. Great location, rates, amenities and atmosphere!
