It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Vail and Beaver Creek

Peak Season: late-November to early-April

During these prime ski months, Vail and Beaver Creek are the busiest and priciest of the year – but well worth it for the powdery slopes. Temperatures average a perfectly crisp 30 degrees.

Off Season: June to September

Summer isn’t exactly the low season; hotels promote activity packages and outdoor enthusiasts pile in for fresh mountain air and pleasant, 75-degree weather. Oktoberfest in September and other summer festivals also attract a fair share of visitors.

Sweet Spot: October to mid-November; early-April to May

Temperatures are chilly in the 60s but the lifts are closed and snow is sparse. Still, if it’s not skiing your after, you can beat the summer or winter rush and snag severely reduced hotel rates.
