Vail Valley Events

Vail Valley combines some of the best alpine resorts in the world with a small-town, European feel and a variety of cultural and recreational opportunities. A number of events, including the annual GoPro Mountain Games and the Vail Summer Bluegrass Series add to the excitement.

Vail Valley is surrounded by the White River National Forest, with Gore Creek flowing east to west through the center of it all. Lift-served mountain biking and hiking can be found on Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Resort. Other activities include golfing, fly fishing, Jeep tours and white water rafting. After a day spent in the great outdoors at over 8,000 feet, visitors will find three base areas, world-class dining and a lively nightlife scene to welcome them home. Vail Valley is conveniently located along Interstate 70, west of Denver International Airport.
