Enjoy Beaver Creek Wine & Spirits Festival, Live Music & More

By Caitlin Row Stoner

The Beaver Creek Wine & Spirits Festival kicks off on Thursday, August 9. That means culinary exploration will be at your fingertips all weekend! 

While summer heat persists, temperatures are starting to cool down. And that means fall colors are right around the corner. I'm crossing my fingers for lots of reds, oranges and yellows come September and October. Autumn is my favorite time to enjoy Colorado's high country. 

This week temperatures will hover in the low 80s during the day, with temperatures dipping to the 70s next week. Mostly sunshine with an occasional thunderstorm is predicted. Check back anytime for the 10-day forecast.

With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
