No matter which holiday you celebrate during December, Vail is a magical place to enjoy it. Lights and garlands hang from lampposts, buildings and trees, illuminating the blanketing snow with a welcoming glow. Firepits offer places to stop and warm your hands. Ice skaters shout and laugh on quaint rinks. Making the season even more festive is Vail Holidays, December 14 – 31, 2019
Vail Holidays features some of Vail’s grandest traditions, from the annual tree lighting (which occurs next to the iconic Covered Bridge), to the Dickens Carolers, to the Winter Solstice on Ice performances. With activities ranging from cookie decorating and ornament making to evening headliner concerts, Vail Holidays has activities for all ages. On New Year’s Eve, the torchlight ski-down at Golden Peak is a wonder to behold and to participate in, and the public can participate! The spectacular fireworks that follow truly ring in the new year.
Note: Be sure to make all dining and activity reservations early!
