Summer Gondola announcements and Independence Day in Vail

Summertime has kicked off! Restaurants are open, the hiking is fantastic, and the 70 degree and sunny weather is here. We are pleased to report that Vail Resorts has announced their plans for summer Gondola operations.

Gondola One in Vail Village will be open starting July 1 for scenic rides and Gondola Two in Lionshead is slated to open mid-July.

For those who have never visited Vail, here are the details for both Gondolas:

Gondola One is located in Vail Village. From your Destination Residences Vail condo, Gondola One is a 20 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride. We recommend taking the beautiful Gore Valley Travel, a paved bike and walking path that runs alongside the Gore Creek. The in-town bus is also a great option. It is free and the stop is right outside of Montaneros.

Once you're up to top, there are great hiking trails, scenic viewpoints and Grab 'n go food will be available to snack on at Mid-Vail.

Gondola Two (Eagle Bahn) is located in Lionshead, a mere 3 minute walk from Destination Residences Vail. Gondola Two is expected to begin turning mid-July with Epic Discovery's interpretive trails, the mountain roller coaster, and grab 'n go food/drink at Eagle's Nest.

Currently, there are no plans for bike hauls, stay tuned for more information.

Independence Day

July 4 in the valley is always a wonderful celebration. This year's Vail America Days will look a bit different than past years. Unfortunately, there will be no parade but the Town of Vail will be featuring exhibits, surprises, and family friendly activities in Lionshead and Vail Village.

Fireworks will be happening this year! As one of the few places in Colorado to be featuring a fireworks show, Vail is the spot to be this July 4. Grab a cocktail and enjoy the fireworks display from your private balcony at Destination Residences Vail. Lionshead is the perfect setting to watch from the comfort of your home away from home.

Fireworks will begin at 9:45 pm and last for 10 minutes.
