Tips for a Truly Magical Vail Vacation
the world over for its unparalleled skiing and snowboarding has
been attracting visitors from around the world. Planning ahead of
time and knowing what to see and do will help make the most of your
precious vacation time.
1) Of course
with more than 4600 acres of ski-able terrain, the number one thing
to do while vacationing in Vail, North America's largest ski destination,
is skiing or boarding the slopes.
For a different kind of snow experience that's perfect for
travelers of all ages, snow tubing is an activity that the
traveler must make time for. Ski areas typically have special
designated areas for tubing.
3) Two of the most unique winter snow activities sure to make
memories that will last a lifetime include snowshoeing and
dog sledding - both will leave lasting impressions.
For a little romance, the best way to experience the beauty of Vail
is with a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the splendid snowy landscape.
5) Outdoor enthusiasts
love ice skating, winter horseback riding, and snowmobiling.
6) Adventure enthusiasts with a flare for wild, heart-pounding excitement
should check out Vail ice climbing, which is some of the best in
the world. Rock climbing in Vail is pretty remarkable too.
7) When the weather is too chilly for comfort, Vail offers plenty
of indoor activities. The favorites include attending a wine tasting
at a local winery, checking out the Ski Museum and Ski Hall of Fame,
and shopping at one of the many wide variety of boutiques for everything
from clothing, jewelry, gifts and specialty items to sporting goods
and ski apparel.
8) The best way to pamper is at a Vail Spa like Golden Leaf Spa
at Marriott Mountain Lodge, Aria Spa & Club at Cascade, or Heaven
Massage & Spa to name a few.
9) Dining at one of Vail's many delightful restaurants provides
the perfect way to unwind after a long day of activity, or take
a much-needed mid-day break. Everything from sports bars to fine
dining and cuisines including Asian, French, Italian, and Continental
will surely delight every palate.
10) And finally, a must-see attraction for all travelers is the
Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, the world's highest botanical gardens
at 8,200 feet.
There is so
much to do during the winter in Vail Colorado that travelers to
this snowy wonderland are always happy. The average hundreds of
inches of snow per year in Vail make it a truly magical place.
