Free Activities in Vail

It is possible to use the words free and Vail in the same sentence.

At Vail Cascade Resort, free takes the form of complimentary Wednesday craft beer tastings in Fireside Bar, weekend dive-in movie nights at the resort pool, and fireside s'mores and stargazing.

Off property, the town of Vail and beyond offers a mountain of free activities and experiences that range from guided nature hikes with Walking Mountains, walking tours and fly fishing clinics to skate parks, biking and hiking trails and playgrounds to keep kids of all ages moving and entertained on a dime.
