    Your photos make me want to visit again in the winter and see snow in that beautiful setting. Summers are pretty too.

    Linda: We’ve been to Vail and other ski resorts during summers and we’ve wondered – 1) are there shuttles that allow you to travel around without driving, 2) are the sidewalks, paths, etc. clear enough to walk around safely, 3) do you wear clothes there that you never wear anywhere else, 4) are there comfortable viewing locations where you can entertain yourself watching others on the slopes, 5) are there very simple outdoor activities(sledding) for those that don’t want to or can’t develop the skills needed to ski, snowboard, or ski jump in a week’s time?

      Pat, I’ll try to answer all of your questions based on what I know which may or may not be all the info you need. (1)Within the city of Vail from east to west and even across the interstate, there are free buses. If you go to the transportation center in mid-Vail, you can catch buses for a nominal fee to other parts of the area like Beaver Creek and Breckinridge. (2)We have had no fresh snow so all roads and side walks were completely clear; however, if it snows that is definitely not the case. (3) We have worn our ski pants and ski jacket here for warmth, gloves, hats, etc. (4) At the base of the large lifts you can see the ski runs and enjoy a bite to eat outside in the sunshine if not too cold. (5) You can take a snowshoe tour and cross country ski tour or rent a snowmobile with a guide.There are also sleigh rides in the evening for dinner sites on the mountain. All of this is quite pricey!

    Mom, how exciting that you were going to snowmobile!! Have you done that before!? Something I haven’t experienced myself. You’re quite the “sassy” 70+…and I love it!! So glad you two took the adventure again together 🙂
