Just 100 miles west of Denver, lies a beautiful mountain range, called the Gore Mountain Range. The world-class resort, Vail, resides in these mountains in the Vail Valley. This summer, for the first time ever, Vail is offering free gondola rides for children ages 12 and younger. With the purchase of an adult ticket, your child will get to experience the awe-inspiring views of the Vail Valley and Gore Mountain Range, for free!
Once you’ve made it up the mountain, you have the option to purchase a ticket to experience Vail’s exclusive summer experience, the Epic Discovery. Epic Discovery includes tons of fun activities including an alpine coaster, a zipline tour, ropes course, tubing, and interactive nature experiences. You can purchase an Epic Discovery day pass that covers all activities, or purchase tickets individually at lower rates. This is truly a good way to spend the day with family on your mountain vacation.
Along with Epic Discovery, Vail is also debuting their new 36-foot high permanent rock climbing wall, the second tallest and permanent rock climbing wall in Colorado! In addition, Vail offers golf courses, shopping, outdoor concerts, hot air balloon rides, tennis, mountain biking, fly fishing, biking, hiking, mountain climbing, canoeing and whitewater rafting to keep you occupied. All activities can be safely enjoyed with expert guides to lead your group, and offering all the equipment and gear needed for the adventure, some packages include lunch and snacks.
