Easily the biggest of Minturn’s attractions is the town’s geographic setting. Minturn lies between the gorgeous White River National Forest and Holy Cross Wilderness, sits right beside the Eagle River and is situated between two world-renowned ski resorts, Vail and Beaver Creek. Visitors and residents can partake in a range of outdoor activities, from skiing or snowboarding to camping and mountain biking. So it’s fair to say the main Minturn attraction is the great outdoors.
