Vail Colorado receives more than 375 inches of snow every winter (close to 1,000 cm)!  As a result visitors to Vail experience some of the best AND MOST CONSISTENT snow conditions in the world.  What makes Vail so special is the consistent early season snow - with steady modest snowfalls throughout the season.  You can expect frequent 4-8 inch snowfalls - with occasional larger "dumps".  And one of the hallmarks of skiing in the central Colorado Rockies - is the frequent "blue bird" days  of sunshine following overnight snowfalls.
