Skiers and snowboarders head to The Arrabelle at Vail Square in the winter, while hikers, mountain bikers and people who enjoy cultural events come in the summer. In the warmer months, Sunday-through-Thursday rates may prove a bit more cost efficient, but they don’t take any shortcuts in action-packed itineraries. Summer weekends are filled with festivals, music, dance and farmers markets, so Denverites and people from other Colorado Front Range communities head to the mountains. Of course, that’s not to say other times of the year aren’t pleasant around Vail, too. Both the spring (late March’s Vail Film Festival) and fall (disc golf and mountain tours at Adventure Ridge throughout September) have great events on the annual calendar as well.
