Why Vail Valley
Not only is Vail Valley a gateway for all types of winter sports, it has also become a hot spot for incredible summer adventures, which makes it the perfect choice if you are looking for a destination with endless activities and things to do, no matter what the season. There are amazing spas, farmers markets and yoga classes as well as great shopping, dining and après-ski. Whether you love outdoor adventures or you prefer more of a relaxing retreat, Vail Valley has something for every one of our 21-5 families and it offers plenty of locations that would be ideal for our properties.
Winter is not a time for hibernation because there are so many unforgettable activities and experiences on offer. Aside from hitting the world-famous ski slopes, you can take a sleigh ride to dinner, go for a dogsled ride through the trees or try fat biking over the snow, the area’s fastest growing sport. You’ll also find multiple ice-skating rinks and ponds to skate on, outdoor music concerts and festivals and even a winter arts and crafts market in Minturn.
In summer, thrill seekers can fly through the trees on a zip line, go whitewater rafting along Eagle River or race down an alpine coaster. Enjoy scenic gondola rides, off-road tours or fly-fishing in Gore Creek, which runs directly through Vail’s town center. If you like hiking, there are trails that lead to stunning waterfalls, and in the Holy Cross Wilderness, you’ll discover a handful of stunning lakes that are easily accessible. There are mountain biking and road cycling routes aplenty, and while some are challenging, others are more family-friendly. You'll also find numerous world-class golf courses within close proximity.
Another big draw is Vail Valley’s many wonderful cultural festivals and big annual events including Hot Summer Nights, Vail International Dance Festival, Snow Daze and the Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships that attract an international crowd.
