If you're looking for a place to eat in Vail that doesn't empty your wallet, this is the place. It is in the "Lionshead" part of Vail, so you'll most likely want to catch the town bus if you are parked in main Vail.

Such a cool experience! Snowshoe or ski one mile (all equipment provided on site) to a hut for an awesome 4 course meal. Only 10 minutes away from the house at the ski cooper resort.

Entertainment & Activities

Though it is pricey, you are getting a lot for your money. The mountain is huge with plenty of awesome expert terrain and fast moving lifts. There is also a cool little resort called Adventure Ridge at the top with tubing, skating, ski biking, etc. if you want to go play on the mountain but skiing isn't your thing. During the summer, you can rent bikes to ski down, or take the super cool mountain "coaster".

Snowmobiling, ATV, side by side rentals, snow cat tours, paintball, archery, etc. all less than two miles away from the tiny home. You could walk there if you wanted via the railroad tracks behind the house! Activities vary by season. If you don't have your own outdoor toys with you, this is the place to go.

Great Nordic skiing and snowshoeing available 10 minutes away. Also has fat bikes for biking on the snow, if we don't have fresh snow for downhill skiing or snowmobiling, this is a fun way to adventure in the winter.

This is the ski mountain to go to if you are a beginner skier on a budget. Combine this mountain with rentals from Alpine Ski and Sport in Leadville, and you're paying about 25% per day of skiing than any of the larger resorts. Smaller mountain with slower lifts, but this is really all most skiers visiting the area need, and you can save the money for a fancy dinner in Vail!

Great place to rent skis and other winter toys, about 25% the price of ski rentals in the major resorts.

If you want to say you've done a 14'er, this is one of the "easier" hikes above 14,000 feet in Colorado. That being said, it is still a 14'er, so the terrain does get steep and technical at the top. If you are not an experienced hiker, attempt at your own risk.

A beautiful destination at the end of an average length hike. For an added challenge, attempt in winter with poles/tracks on your shoes and/or snowshoes. The lake looks awesome in winter when the water freezes from the falls, but you will definitely need this winter gear for your boots as it does get slippery and steep at the top.

One of the older training facilities for the US military, so much cool history here. Pull off just past nova guides and you'll see a little history here. During the summer you can drive up the dirt road even in a sedan and check out some of the signs on the sides of the road to see some of the amazing history to this location only two minutes away by car.

Essentials

If you need more than what the small convenience store in Red Cliff provides, this is probably the best place to go in Vail. Has the most reasonably priced Vail liquor store inside as well.

Has a small general store for your basics like milk and bread, chips, etc. and coffee starting at 6:30 AM weekdays and 7AM weekends. There is also a liquor store attached that opens a bit later in the morning. This is the closest place to grab your essentials, only 5 mins away right across from Mangos.
