Get out your beads, masks, feathers boas, crowns and costumes for CarniVail February 25-26! Mardi Gras flair and fun infuse the slopes on this weekend before Fat Tuesday. Cajun-style cuisine like a crawfish boil, sausage, corn, new potatoes, gumbo, etouffee, king cake, hurricanes and beer specials are lunchtime fare at mountaintop Eagle’s Nest beginning at noon on Saturday. On Sunday at MidVail, the lunch party continues. Take a break from powder on the slopes for powdered sugar on a beignet! Live Cajun music will keep your feet tapping both days.
The New Orleans-style celebration continues après ski at the base of Gondola One in Vail Village. Mardi Gras inspired drink and food specials, music, and giveaways continue the fun until 6:00 p.m.
