Million Dollar Views for Free

The beauty of the Vail Valley is the variety of terrain and climate within the region. If you do not like the weather, just drive 15 miles. Down the river valley floor west of Edwards, you begin to a shift in plant life. Welcome to the high mountain desert.

There are plenty of places to see from just the roadside alone through Glenwood Canyon or along Colorado River Road. If you are looking to hike, visit the White River National Forest office in Minturn for trail information. The ranger station is located just south of I-70 at the 171 exit for Minturn.

Voluntourism

Volunteering is a priceless experience that only costs your time. With over 100 nonprofits in the Vail Valley, we’re sure you’ll find a cause you’re passionate about. Organizations range from the Vail Jazz Festivals to helping plant flowers in the famous Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.

As the snow melts, trash becomes visible on the Valley’s roadways. Each Spring, more than 950 volunteers help keep this from entering the waterways by participating in the Eagle River Watershed Council Community Pride Highway Cleanup.

Volunteering can be done solo, or grab your friends, family, or co-workers, and make a difference in the community. Visit VailValleyVolunteers.com and see which local nonprofits need volunteers during your trip to the Vail Valley. Help us as we nurture a culture of respect for others and for nature.
