Vail Valley “It’s a Kids Life”
Vail Valley Kids Winter Fun
As soon as kids can walk they can ski or snowboard! Here in the Vail Valley children as young as three years old can take private or group lessons from some of the best instructors in the world. For kids slightly older they can take specialized lessons that focus on terrain parks, racing, technique, and telemark skiing. On Vail Mountain you can find Adventure Ridge which is a great place for entertainment and education for children (or children-at-heart) of all ages. In the winter they offer sledding, ski-biking, snowshoeing, a trampoline, laser tag, and snowmobiling. Horse-drawn sleigh rides, dog sledding, and ice skating are just a couple of the activities available to families throughout the winter. Please visit our winter activities page for more information on what to do while in Vail.
Vail Valley Kids Summer FunSummertime is just as exciting with a plethora of outdoor activities, camps, festivals, and concerts for children and adults alike. Kick it off with a trip to the largest farmers market in Colorado every Sunday from June to September. Parents can buy the Colorado grown produce and locally fermented wines, while the kids can ride a bucking bronco or have a caricature portrait drawn on the spot. If you want to avoid the crowds of the bustling villages head out to the forest for a view filled excursion in the form of a hike, bike, horseback ride, or jeep tour. Don’t forget to take a day to enjoy the natural beauty of the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens where a lot can be learned about the Rocky Mountain landscape and a little Vail history can be found. The summertime fun is too expansive to list here, for more detailed information visit our summer activities page or feel free to contact us at any time!
Daycare in the Vail Valley is taken to a whole new level with its surplus of nurseries, play schools, and camps for children to not only stay but learn. Vail and Beaver Creek resorts each have day care, instructional sessions, and camps for your convenience. Also, many private and public organizations offer youth programs such as The Youth Foundation, The Avon Recreation Center, Imagination Station, The Vail Recreation District, and many hotels, as well!
