Weather information for the Vail Ski Resort area is provided below. Average temperatures, climate details and current forecasts are included.
Vail is high in the mountains, and therefore experiences pleasantly warm summers and cold winters. The temperature rarely rises above freezing from Thanksgiving to late February. The town of Vail receives an average of 200 inches of snowfall per season, with even more in the surrounding mountains. Roads may occasionally close. In summer, the thermometer can reach the 80s, but more often hovers around the low to mid-70s. Combined with brisk mountain breezes, this makes summers refreshing and cool.
