Looking like a birthday cake covered in perfect icing powder, the jagged peaks and miles of slopes are what attracts millions of visitors. This alpine city is not a one-season destination. From hiking in summer to skiing in winter, there’s always something to do in Vail. Perfect to cool off in warm weather, Whitewater Park offers river rafting in many difficulty levels for families with kids to experienced paddlers. Of course in winter, nothing beats snowboarding or skiing down a vertical drop of 3.450 feet against an unmatched backdrop. Whatever you do and whenever you come, prepare yourself for an adrenaline fueled vacation.
