Family Friendly Winter Activities in Vail
Ice Skating- Just steps from your condo at Montaneros Vail slip on some skates and ice skate under the snow covered village in Lionshead. It’s the perfect place to wind down after a day of skiing. Let the kids ice skate their last bit of energy as you grab a slice of pizza at Blue Moose, one of Lionshead's Vail Restaurants located next to the skating rink.
Snowmobiling-Skiing is not the only snowy adventure in Vail, Colorado! Explore the back country of deep powder or easy cruising on a snowmobile. Nova guides and Sage Outdoor Adventures offer snowmobiling for families ages 9 and up. They will even pick you up from your Vail vacation rental!
Snowshoeing - Need a break from skiing but still want to enjoy the fresh mountain air? Vail Walking Mountains science center offers daytime and evening snowshoe tours.
