Vail and Beaver Creek truly sparkle when the grass is green, and the weather is fine! Although we are known for our epic mountain resorts, summer is the hidden gem.
Summertime is filled with outdoor adventures like hiking, mountain biking, road biking, fishing, boating, paddleboarding, kayaking, horseback riding, ATVing, and so much more. It is also the perfect time for outdoor events, which we have in droves.
