It has been just over a week since the end of the ski season and most of us haven't even put away our winter gear yet, but it is not too early to start planing your summer trips to the mountains. In the next month Vail Mountain crews will be transforming the ski slopes into an epic summer playground with fun activities for the entire family.
Vail will reopen for summer operations on June 1 for weekend mountain access only and start regular summer hours on June 8. From big time thrills like biking, hiking and rafting to world class concerts and events, Vail is a unique summer destination with adventure around every corner. Epic Discovery, the ultimate playground, provides a unique, connected, on-mountain summer experience for guests. This first-of-its-kind comprehensive on-mountain summer adventure features components such as zip lines, a rock climbing wall, an alpine coaster, wildlife trail exploration, and interactive, “learn-through-play” activities.
