Vail Valley This Week

There’s a reason people flock to the Vail Valley all year long — and why so many of the people who come for a visit choose to stay here for good. That reason, in short, is that the Vail Valley is like a slice of paradise. This is especially true if you’re a nature lover, an outdoor adventurer or an athlete. Visit in the summer to raft or kayak the Eagle River, hike in the Sawatch and/or Gore mountain ranges (which include the White River National Forest, the Eagle’s Nest Wilderness and the Holy Cross Wilderness), fly fish, mountain bike, road bike or run the mountainous trails or pedestrian paths present throughout the Vail Valley. Show up in the winter if you’re excited to bomb down slopes at two of the country’s best ski resorts (Vail and Beaver Creek) or snowshoe or cross-country ski on groomed trails or in the backcountry all winter long. Or just come here any time of the year to enjoy the stellar views. The Vail Valley is nestled in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and the scenery simply can’t be beat.
