To make sure that an epic ski season comes to a spectacular end, we are offering April Vail lodging deals. This ski season Mother Nature has graced Vail with lots of fluffy powder. And, now spring has brought beautiful blue bird days which makes us really excited for all that is still to come.
April Vail Lodging Deals Starting at $199
Vail will be thinking pink in early April with a new rosé tasting event as opener for the iconic Taste of Vail food and wine festival, April 2-5, plus more than 1,000 pink-clad skiers taking to the slopes to fight cancer as part of the third annual Pink Vail ski fundraiser, April 4 and 5. Helping travel budgets stay in the pink as well, Antlers at Vail hotel is offering a roomy studio or one-bedroom suite for $199/night for participants in either event. And Pink Vail skiers receive an additional opportunity to lower their room rate by doing good with extra Antlers discounts based on how much moolah they raise for Pink Vail beneficiary Shaw Regional Cancer Center. In addition to its new Debut of Rosé, providing one of the first opportunities of the year to taste the 2013 rosés just being released, events at this year’s Taste of Vail will include the annual spring lamb cook off, a gourmet tasting picnic atop Vail Mountain, and the Saturday Grand Tasting auction as well as seminars on topics ranging from cigars to olive oil.
