“Our snow conditions have just continued to get better and better throughout the month and we’ve had some of the best skiing and snowboarding of the year in the past couple of weeks,” said Chris Jarnot, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Vail Mountain, “It’s too good right now not to stay open and give our passholders the gift of another week to get out and enjoy what has been an amazing season at Vail.”

A FEW DO’S AND DON’TS 

  • DO plan in advance how you’re going to get there. There are plenty of cabs/ubers within the Miami Dade Area. Depending where you are coming from, know transportation should vary between $20-$60.
  • DON’T adventure yourself into the festival without any knowledge of where and how to get there. Would you go into the jungle without any plans first? Well the same logic goes here.
  • DO stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. The sun is hot and it is unforgiving. You may not realize it, but stand out there too long and you’ll pay for it later on
  • DON’T spend the entire festival with your phone out. Sure the videos and pictures will be awesome. But live for the moment! You’ll be surrounded by people from all across the globe along some of the most famous DJs in the industry, so enjoy your time! You can always re-live the experience through your memories.
  • DO have the best time of your life!!

 

Have fun & Be safe
