“In the summer the gondola is working so go site seeing or hiking at the ski resort. Summer ice skating is available at specific times. Look at the Vail Daily News paper for special events here and at Nottingham Lake in Avon and in Vail.”

French Restaurant
$$
“Voted one of the top 10 wine bars in the country by the Wall Street Journal. The happy hour can't be beat. Be there before the doors open at 5pm in order to get a spot at the bar for their happy hour with small plates and excellent glasses of wine. If the bar is not full by 5:03, it will be full by 5:05 pm. This is a local favorite.”
