Spring in Vail, Colorado

If you’re considering a family getaway this spring, a weekend in Vail offers the perfect blend of relaxing and exciting activities. Enjoy longer days in Vail with mild temperatures, epic mountain conditions and events the whole family will enjoy. 


Ski season may be coming to an end, but unbeknownst to many, the best conditions are just arriving. The final days on the slopes in Vail are commonly known as some of the finest, with fresh powder and sunny, bluebird days.

After a morning on the slopes, lace up your skates and enjoy the spring sun at the heart of Solaris Plaza. The ice skating rink is open from 1 – 9:30 p.m. daily.


Our favorite spring patios for après ski libations include Up the Creek, Vail Chophouse, and Garfinkel’s. Up the Creek features Vail’s only creek-side patio and a diverse seasonal menu. Conveniently located at the base of the Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead, Vail Chophouse offers stunning slopeside views and live music on select evenings. For a classic ski town vibe, head to Garfinkel’s in Lionshead. Their large deck has provided quality après ski fun-in-the-sun since opening in 1992.

No matter where your spring adventures in Vail take you, your dedicated concierge at Solaris Residences will help guide – and arrange – a memorable mountain experience.
