Indoor Options

HIKING & BIKING

Situated in the Rocky Mountains, the Vail Valley has a giant backyard of trails that march up and down the local hills. Opt to hike or bike on one of the ski mountains, or go further afield and choose another peak in the White River National Forest.

Insider tip: It is very common to have rain at one end of the valley, and sunshine at the other. If inclement weather rolls in while you are in Vail, check the weather in Eagle – and vice versa. Chase the sunshine!

SPAS & ATHLETIC CLUBS

Spas
Hotel spas have long been on the forefront of providing rejuvenating and often times luxurious spa treatments. At Allegria Spa in the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, spa goers can go on a 90-minute guided hike followed by treatments at the spa. View the full list of spas here.

Athletic Clubs
Excellent fitness facilities can be found throughout the valley and at the hotels. View the full list of fitness and recreation centers here.

GOLF

Beaver Creek Golf Course
The Beaver Creek Golf Club, nestled against the slopes of Beaver Creek Mountain, is one of the longest established golf courses in the Vail Valley. Opened in 1982, the course was designed by noted course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and is known and respected for its long, narrow, challenging fairways and stunning scenery.

Eagle Ranch Golf Club
Eagle Ranch Golf Club is located in the beautiful small town of Eagle, Colorado. The majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains provide a spectacular setting for the Arnold Palmer Signature Design Course. The course opened in 2001 as part of a new, master-planned residential community called Eagle Ranch.

EagleVail Golf Club
The EagleVail Golf Club course was created in the 1970s by the Devlin/Von Hagge design team to provide a true mountain golf experience. Both the 18 hole and Par 3 courses are integrated with rivers, streams, ponds, wetlands, forests, and gardens.

Red Sky Ranch and Golf Club
Red Sky Ranch and Golf Club is a private golf club that opens play to guests who stay at one of their partner properties. Enjoy luxurious facilities, the Red Sky Golf Academy and spectacular 360 views of the Colorado Rockies.

Vail Golf Club
Designed and built by one of Vail’s pioneers, Ben Krueger, in 1962, Vail Golf Club continues to be thought of by many as one of the best courses in the Vail Valley – a must-play among locals and guests alike. The fairways are tree-lined and generally flat, but numerous greenside and fairway bunkers, as well as beaver ponds, will test a golfer’s accuracy.

Cordillera
Cordillera is home to four very distinct golf courses: Valley, Mountain, Summit and Short. Each with their very own unique characteristics and elevation make a round of golf not only memorable, but unsurpassed in its ability to challenge and mesmerize the golfer.

Sonnenalp
The course’s award-winning orientation allows for dramatic morning and afternoon sun while highlighting stunning mountain views of the Rocky Mountains. The Sonnenalp Club is one of the first to open and last to close with one of the longest golfing seasons in the Vail Valley.

Gypsum Creek Golf Course
Situated in the beautiful Gypsum Valley, Gypsum Creek Golf Course is known as much for its beautiful views as it is for the challenging Pete Dye and Perry Dye design. The course is perched atop a sage-covered mesa that looks out across the surrounding Red Table Mountains.

Did you know? The golf ball flies further in high altitudes mainly due to the change in air density, which decreases as elevation increases. The ball moves more easily through the air and doesn’t slow down as quickly as it flies. You may have to adjust your swing when playing at the courses up here.

Restaurants & Bars

In the Vail Valley, eating isn't merely sustenance - it's an important part of the lifestyle. From fine dining hotspots to casual comforts, it's not hard to find great food. Colorado is known for their locals breweries, distilleries and even wineries. Come sample a taste of Colorado and even international spirit favorites.

Activity Providers

Sure, Vail is world-renowned for its skiing and snowboarding, but the Vail Valley offers plenty beyond vast bowls of bluebird powder days and grippin' groomers. Whether you prefer your adventure water-drenched, iced, air-borne, cliff-side, cycled, motorized or snowy out mountain recreation covers it- and much, much more.

Vail Valley Events

Ski terrain and wonderful snow put the Vail Valley on the map, but it's more than just a ski resort. The calendar is packed with events that are a big part of the Vail Valley's culture. From outdoor concerts at the Ford Amphitheater to bull riding at the rodeo, it's easy to stay busy.

When I initially became involved as a volunteer with Sacred Cycle I knew mountain biking was more than a fun way to release stress, to me. It had been the cause of significant improvements in my mental health.

Like me, you might be wondering, “Why does Sacred Cycle include biking to promote healing after sexual...
