While snow totals don’t matter much in summer, it’s still important to check the forecast before you head out for the day. Weather in the High Rockies is known for changing quickly and conditions in Vail Village and Lionshead can be quite different than those at the top of the gondola.
Keep yourself up to date and prepared with a few of the sources Vail Ski Patrol, Lift Ops and other departments rely on each day as they work on the mountain.
A feed from The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the source of the weather and temperature outlooks on Vail.com’s Snow and Weather Report page.
