I'm wondering what good summer activities are for a family here. Also any other tips would be welcome!!!
There is lots to do in Vail- check out their website at vailcom
There is an awesome trail called Vail Summit which goes from Vail to Breckenridge- you can bike, walk
You can take the gondola up- there are zip lines and bike rentals. Music and food festivals.
Summer is a perfect time to visit Vail! The weather is nice and the gondola at Lions Head will be open. The locals told me that they are using the mountains for summer activities. We saw zip lines, many places to hike, bike and kayak. The free guide I picked up at the visitor center was full of great ideas. Hope this helps!
oh well thanks for your thoughts anyway! i appreciate that you took the time. :) it looks beautiful.
i also meant to ask- does it cost money to go up the ski lifts in the summer? do you know how much or anything about that?
I'm afraid I won't be of much help because we were there for a wedding and did not have time to venture out much. The wedding took place about 10 miles outside of Vail at Piney Lake. The road leading there is a challenge as it is an old logging road but the place is spectacular. Google Piney River Ranch and you will see what I mean. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Have a great time in Vail.
