We know — you come to Vail to enjoy epic skiing and snowboarding. But whether it’s your first trip to the valley or your twentieth, you’re sure to find plenty of amazing things to do in Vail besides skiing.
True, this year’s spring break may look a little different than usual due to the pandemic. Does that mean you have to hole up in your hotel room when you’re not on the slopes?
Not at all! Here are five great spring ideas to include during your 2021 Vail ski trip.
1. Practice Social Distancing via Snowshoeing
Can’t get enough of playing in the snow? Swap out your skis for snowshoes and get ready to see a different side of the mountain.
Sign up for a half-day “Tracks, Signs, and Snowshoes” tour offered at various locations around Vail. Learn more about local wildlife and how to identify their tracks while enjoying the crisp alpine air. The dates for spring break 2021 are March 2, March 11, and March 25.
2. Browse Art at the 14th Annual Vail Winterfest
Are you an art lover? Don’t miss the exhibits and events organized by the Art in Public Places program in Vail.
The highlights include the 20 spectacular, fully illuminated ice sculptures scattered around Vail village. You can also enjoy the Community Lantern Exhibition at the International Bridge. If you want an interactive experience, the Alpine Arts Center is holding virtual lantern-making classes online.
3. Sign up for Virtual Camp With Lindsey Vonn
Are you a young person with a passion for health? Or are you a parent hoping to instill healthy goals and habits in your children?
Local superstar Lindsey Vonn is hosting a virtual camp to teach young people about fitness, mindfulness, and safety. Boys and girls of all ages are invited to pre-register and enjoy the event on March 6th.
4. Take a Short Scenic or Historic Road Trip
If the weather’s great while you’re in town, why not hop in the car and explore the local area? Vail Valley has a lot to offer beyond the slopes!
History lovers will love the drive through the historic towns of Minturn and Red Cliff on the way to Camp Hale, once home to the famous 10th Mountain Division. Another idea is to make the spectacular drive through Glenwood Canyon and enjoy a long, relaxing soak at Iron Mountain Hot Springs.
