Free Fall Activities

Nothing beats free, and if that includes exploring what Colorado does best, than all the better. Hiking and Mountain Biking are some of the local’s favorite free fall activities since the weather is perfect and the trees are wearing crowns of gold. With tons of great trails and paths scattered throughout the valley, you’ll be hard pressed to find your favorite. Eagle is becoming a mecca for mountain bikers. When asked, locals said their favorite trails were Boneyard and Haymaker.

Want to stay a little closer to civilization? Head to Oktoberfest in Vail or Beaver Creek and enjoy free Bavarian music and a festive atmosphere that includes a Bratwurst eating contest, keg bowling, Bavarian yodeling, and stein lifting. Listed as a “don’t miss” by many locals, this celebration of beer, music and autumn ranks as a top fall pick.

Local Tips

If you’re looking for deals, we know where to find them. Grab the local newspaper, The Vail Daily, as soon as you arrive in the valley. It will have all the local specials running during your vacation and range from spas, to restaurants, to activities.
