The best ski racers from some 70 nations will descend on Vail and Beaver Creek February 2 – 15, 2015 for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, but is the opportunity to watch the world’s best in action also a good time to catch some Vail pow-pow of your own? Absolutely, says Antlers at Vail hotel General Manager Rob LeVine, who describes the two-week ski championship festivities as an “epic value-added opportunity for the ski vacation of a lifetime.”
“Vail will be fully open for guest skiing, and in addition visitors will be able to watch best-in-the-world ski racing with no admission charge – and partake of Vail’s celebratory atmosphere as we show international racers and spectators alike a good time,” says LeVine. “Antlers at Vail guests are steps from the Vail Lionshead Gondola, all of the concerts and activities planned for Lionshead during the championships and quick transportation to the races. Plus the Antlers has promised not to raise our lodging prices while the championships are going on,” he adds.
Antlers at Vail February lodging rates start from $527/night for a one-bedroom suite. In addition to offering its regular lodging prices for comfy suites with room to spread out and full kitchens, the Antlers at Vail will honor its regular winter specials during the February races, including a 15-percent discount on a stay of 5 nights or more and the chance to book a spring room for $129 with every winter night’s stay.
Vail has planned a schedule of multiple daily activities during the championships, including both free and ticketed concerts, artistic performances, art exhibits and culinary events. A full calendar of events will be posted on the 2015 Vail/Beaver Creek FIS Alpine World Ski Championships website as the event nears. And hassle-free transportation is also a goal of the event, with Vail sponsoring organizations even planning a mobile app designed to help visitors avoid waiting in line for transportation to and from the races.
In addition to all the special World Ski Championships activities, Vail offers a skiing experience that consistently ranks at the top of all U.S. resorts, including making the top three on SKI magazine’s 2014 “best” list, which called the Colorado resort “a skier’s Disney Land.” And beyond skiing, Vail provides a variety of family-friendly snow activities, from ice skating and snowshoeing – with Antlers at Vail providing complimentary snowshoes to guests – to Vail Mountain’s Adventure Ridge winter activities, including snow tubing, ski biking and mini-snowmobile racing on a kid-size course.
