Vail, Colorado is a world-famous ski resort town, and there is definitely no shortage of things to do here! In the winter, the town comes alive with skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. But Vail is more than just a winter wonderland – it’s a year-round destination with something for everyone. Here are some of the best things to do in Vail, Colorado.

Hit the Slopes at Vail Ski Resort

Vail Ski Resort is one of the largest ski resorts in the United States, and it’s definitely worth a visit whether you’re an experienced skier or a beginner. With more than 5,000 acres of skiable terrain, there’s something for everyone here. If you’re new to skiing or snowboarding, you can take lessons at the resort’s terrain park. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars located at the resort, so you can take a break from skiing and enjoy some après-ski drinks and food.

Explore Vail Village

Vail Village is the pedestrian-friendly commercial center of Vail and it’s filled with boutiques, restaurants, galleries, and more. This is the perfect place to do some shopping or grab a bite to eat. During the summer months, there are also free concerts held in Solaris Plaza. You can also take a ride on the gondola up to Mid-Vail for breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains.

Take a Scenic Drive on Trail Ridge Road

Trail Ridge Road is one of the most popular scenic drives in Colorado for good reason – it offers breathtaking views of mountain peaks, alpine meadows, wildflowers, and forests. The road is open from late May to early October weather permitting, so be sure to check conditions before heading out. Trail Ridge Road typically closes due to heavy snowfall in early October, so plan your trip accordingly!
