Vail is awesome in the summer


The weather is perfect and there is plenty of outdoor activities in a normal summer season. Just note that hiking/running is going to be hard at altitude. I run in Co Springs when I'm there on business and the extra 2000 ft in Vail makes a big difference.

We stayed at the Vail Mountain Resort for a week. It is an older property with rooms on the smallish side. With had a suite with a kitchen and it was nice to have the option to dine in when we were exhausted. Also, pack warm because it gets into the 40s at night.

In a normal summer, the Vail Four Seasons has very reasonable room rates. However, I'm guessing that it is slammed with everyone trying to drive to their vacation.
