Ski-and-stay special includes free kids’ stay, gear, family dinner and pool toy
Vail, Colo. – February 14, 2019 – Vail Spring Break is right around the corner, and for those in search of a fun getaway that doesn’t cost a fortune, the Antlers at Vail hotel has created a Colorado ski-and-stay package that gives families a break. Starting March 1, 2019, the Antlers at Vail will offer its new “Chill Out” Family Spring Break Ski Package, including a kids-stay-free upgrade to a one-bedroom condo with separate bunkbed room for the price of a one-bedroom. Also included: kid ski and snowboard rentals, a chef-prepared family feast to be enjoyed in Antlers’ roomy home-like suites and a snowman beach ball for splashing in the pool – plus access to the hotel’s long list of complimentary amenities from loaner sleds to yoga class.
March means warmer temps and more hours of daylight (read: extended lift hours and more time outdoors) and Vail Mountain Resort frequently sees its deepest snow base of the season. Coupled with sunny “bluebird” days, nothing beats springtime skiing in Colorado, and Antlers at Vail’s “Chill Out” Family Package, March 1 – April 21, offers a stress-free, affordable choice for families on Spring Break.
On top of free lodging for the kids and complimentary kids’ gear package with every paid adult rental, Ski Butlers’ award-winning service since 2004 makes renting ski and snowboard equipment hassle-free, with in-room fittings and complimentary in-house ski valet to the nearby Eagle Bahn Gondola for all Antlers’ guests. If you’re a beginner, spring is a great time to learn to ski or snowboard as the snow is soft and forgiving, the warmer days make for more enjoyable learning conditions and Vail’s ski school is also at the top of its class.
“One of the best things about Antlers at Vail is its central location in Lionshead Village, making the most of Vail’s attractions – including the ski mountain – a short walk away,” wrote AFAR local expert. Antlers’ guests can take the Eagle Bahn gondola – just steps from the hotel – up to Vail’s Adventure Ridge, offering ski bikes, kids snowmobile track and a slippery tubing slope, or go ice skating at the nearby Vail Square rink. The hotel is in the heart of the action, easy walking distance to Lionshead’s shops and restaurants and on Vail’s free shuttle route.
Antlers at Vail also provides a plethora of complimentary amenities to keep kids happy and occupied, including the heated mountainside pool and hot tubs, loaner snowshoes – head to Walking Mountains Science Center for a free naturalist-led hike through aspen forests and streamside habitat – sleds and GoPro cameras, and hundreds of movies to borrow and watch in your condo; after a day on the slopes families can cozy up next to the fireplace with a familiar flick.
The “Chill Out” special includes one family dinner prepared by Chef Barry Robinson, Antlers at Vail in-house catering chef, delivered to guests’ suite at their time of choice. Guests can choose from an array of menu dinner options, including the hearty beef and vegetable stew, chicken pot pie ragout and traditional spaghetti and meatballs in homemade sauce.
Families can rack up more savings on dining with Antlers full-service kitchens that allow for keeping groceries on-hand to whip up homemade meals or get a second helping of last night’s takeout. Craving an elaborate breakfast or afternoon smoothie? The hotel’s small appliance loaner program – free with lodging – includes everything from waffle makers, crock pots, espresso makers and rice cookers to full-on mixers.
The “Chill Out” Family Spring Break package is available for $620/night – nearly a 20-percent discount – for a family of four March 1-31, and $335/night – a 25-percent discount – April 1-21, subject to availability and restrictions. Tax is additional – and as always, Antlers charges no resort fees.
