Spring break in the Rockies, Vail Colorado

4 More inches of snow today.  I didn’t get up on the hill but everyone is all smiles.  Soft snow and sunshine.  Here is a picture I took with my camera phone this afternoon around 3pm.  It is spring break in the Colorado Rockies.  There are plenty of families here for the next two weeks through April 11th.  After that we have one more week that the ski mountain is open (April 11 – 18th).  The Antlers at Vail hotel is running a “Snowball Special”, check it out on our specials page.   The weather will be blue bird skies the next 2 days with snow perhaps coming again on Wednesday.  It’ll be a great time to get in the Back Bowls.  Chris R.
