    The hiking and mountain biking trails are amongst the best in Colorado. Skiing the back bowls is a must in Winter.

    Hike the Berry Picker trail (the name is deceiving) and ride the gondola down for free.

    I've explored a number of the big name ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains and Vail is at the top of the list. Spectacular sights. A one of a kind experience for skiers and boarders of all levels.

    Looking for a great way to to and from anywhere in the Vail/Avon area? Check out Uber for a safe and friendly experience. Your first ride (up to a $20 fare) is free. http://bit.ly/uberrider.

    Try skiing in UT(Alta/Snowbird), MT(Big Sky), WY(Jackson), CA(Mammoth/Kirkwood/Tahoe) and Canada(Whistler/Revelstoke), they are all better than anything Vail or Colorado has to offer.

    Ride the gondola to the top of the ski mountain and walk down amid colorful wildflowers, or for a more heart-pumping adventure, hike up the mountain and catch the gondola back down.
