Widely regarded as a haven for nature enthusiasts, Vail offers an exhilarating blend of thrilling mountain sports, unique family adventures, top-notch dining and the charm of the American West. When it's summertime at the slopes, kids will jump at the chance to go on guided horseback tours through mountain trails, learn about Old West history at the Ashcroft Ghost Town, explore the natural habitat at the Walking Mountains Science Center or ride a raft down one of Colorado’s famous rivers. Parents and kids will enjoy an unforgettable time together taking a sleigh or chuck wagon ride under the stars for a night of food, music, family and fun. In the winter, there is always an opportunity to ski or snowboard down the legendary runs of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. With ski lessons offered for children as young as three, snow tubing runs, snowmobiling tracks and ice skating, there is something for everyone in the colder months. Whether visiting in winter or summer, for family fun, Vail is a one-of-a-kind destination.
