Event Ethusiast


If you ask the locals which culinary event they never miss each spring, it would be Taste of Vail on April 4-10. Taste of Vail showcases more than 30 of Vail’s finest chefs and restaurateurs alongside the owners and winemakers from nearly 50 of the countries’ top wineries.

Not it town during those events? Make dinner one night into an event all it’s own at Game Creek Restaurant in Vail. Nestled just below Eagle’s Nest and just above the Game Creek chair lift, Game Creek Restaurant is a truly unique location where guests enjoy a gourmet dinner while overlooking the beautiful Game Creek Bowl.

Events on the Mountain:

It’s tough to leave the mountain when you’re here, but you also don’t want to miss out on the incredible events Vail and Beaver Creek put on for their guests. Good thing some of the most exciting and adrenaline pumping displays happen on-mountain! Some of our favorites include:
