What is the best time to travel to Vail?

We are a couple trying to go to Vail for the first time. We are experienced skiers and for us is important to be a walking distance from the tails.

We have a limited budget and we want to spend no more than 200 per night.

Any suggestions? Really appreciated!

With low budget visit Vail during low season to save. That means 2nd week of Jan to Pres weeknd. 2 bills won't get you much if anything near the slopes but further away yes if you're ok with less amenities. The vail.com website has a very good lodging search engine. For a deal on lift tix check out the Epic 7 pass.

I would rethink the need to walk to the slopes. You won't do it for $200 at any time of year other than maybe right now when there's very limited skiing. It's not difficult to take a shuttle bus. If that's your budget go for what you can get and don't worry about it. Focus on having fun skiing.

Have fun.

Check out the Roost. Within ur budget. Stayed there in the 70s or maybe it was in their parking lot in my van. Crazy night, can't remember.

Check out Vail Cascades Resort on the western side of vail. I stayed last March and was very happy with the chairlift @ the resort, free transportation to the villages and the room & cost. Good luck and I like March in Vail.

Yes the shuttle is easy. For affordable lodging look at http://www.lionsheadinn.com/

and ihg.com/holidayinn/…hoteldetail the HI has its own shuttle making it pretty easy to come and go. We just took whichever was going at the time, the town bus or the hotel shuttle.

Or like Tex said the Roost.

Here is a great plan -

Stay in Avon at Beaver Creek west / They have a shuttle to take you to vail or beaver creek slopes

Stay in a condo with a kitchen / hot tubs and heated pool

The rates for dates are there - We are looking forward to having you in the valley!
