Driving down Vail Pass

 

Summer provides additional activities including: gondola rides, horseback riding, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, open air concerts and rodeos.

Drive through tiny Minturn and even smaller Red Cliff, mining towns steeped in history, on your way to the popular wilderness area of the Mount of the Holy Cross at 14,005'.

A short drive from Gypsum, 40-acre Sylvan Lake, is the perfect place to bring your small-boat and catch the big ones! Sylvan Lake State Park, one of western Colorado's best kept secrets is open year round. It's a great spot for picnicking, hiking and outdoor photography at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Fish from your boat or off-shore for brook and rainbow trout.

Avon Whitewater Park is only 350-feet long but offers an exhilarating and fun experience. The course starts under "Bob the Bridge" and in keeping with the humor, the three features are named after it: Baby Bob, Bob Jr., and Bob Sr. Beginners through advanced kayakers are welcome as it offers fun for all!

Golfers will want to bring their clubs for some high country games in Edwards, Avon and Vail. Make a day out of driving the scenic Glenwood Canyon and relax at the hot springs pool.

Beaver Creek Mountain was originally designed to accommodate skiers of all ability levels, with a specific focus on winter recreation. Today the mountain is enjoyed by a variety of winter and summer sports enthusiasts.

Commercial air travel accommodations are handled by Eagle County Airport. Please contact your preferred travel agent or airline for flight arrangements.
