Vail is truly a winter wonderland. The snow falls gently and creates a magical snowglobe of hushed excitement. Listen closely and you will hear cries of, “It’s a powder day!” Powder means flying down the mountain in light, fluffy Rocky Mountain snow, face shots and peals of laughter. There are so many Vail things to do in winter, and every one of them nothing but fun.
First on the list of Vail activities should be starting off with a serious breakfast – eggs, lattes, homebaked muffins or pancakes. Then hit the slopes and find your favorite run. Do you love bumps or cruisers? Take time for lunch. Wander through Vail Village, or head to Lionshead to find even more winter activities and Vail things to do. The Dobson Ice Arena has open skate or hockey games. Or give the outdoor rink a spin. With the bright lights and tiny town, it feels like a movie set. Try Nordic skiing on Vail Golf Course, which is professionally groomed every day and offers a guaranteed workout. More of a gym rat? You’re in luck with some of the best gyms and trainers around.
Vail Activities in a Snowy Wonderland
There are plenty of indoor Vail activities in Vail too when the snow is blowing – guaranteed warmth! Sit a spell in the Vail Public Library or visit a local coffee shop to watch the world go by. Indulge in retail therapy. Maybe you need a cozy new sweater or dangly, sparkly earrings. Cute new jeans are always a yes, especially when paired with a saucy new top. See! Shopping can be an aerobic activity in our mountain town. Or sign up for a spin class or a restorative yoga session. You definitely won’t regret it.
