OK, I know what you’re thinking: Who goes to a ski resort when there’s no skiing? But actually, it’s a great time to get bargains on airfare, especially if you take American Airlines‘ direct flight to the Vail/Eagle County airport and save yourself a drive from Denver. There’s lots of stuff to do in a mountain town during the sunny weather, and you can stay at some nice resorts for a lot less than you will Christmas week. Plus no need to pack snow pants and pay for your skis to be checked baggage!
Trips for next weekend on American can be had for $113 each way.
