The climate of Vail (Colorado - United States of America)
Vail is a village located in the southwestern part of Colorado near Vail Ski Resort. Vail is located in Eagle County and is surrounded by White River National Forest. Vail was founded during the second part of last century as a base camp for Vail Ski Resort. This enormous winter sports region has 193 pistes and 33 lifts. The longest piste is the Riva Ridge with a length of 6.4 kilometers (4 miles). Vail is located at an altitude of 2,500 meters (8,200 feet). The pistes can be found at an altitude of 3,500 meters (11,500 feet). Vail has a moderate continental climate with about 880 centimeters (29 feet) of annual snowfall. Subzero temperatures (during the night) may occur all year round. During the winter extremely low temperatures are not uncommon. Because the city is located at a high altitude temperatures during the summer do not rise too high. Temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit) are uncommon.
