The chairlifts have stopped running in Vail and the chic mountain resort is quieting down a bit during the slower spring off season. But, private charter jet visitors to Vail have a lot of great stuff to look forward to once Memorial Day Weekend hits and summer season is in full swing by July 4 – plenty of opportunities for hiking and biking in the mountains, as well as fabulous annual events, the Sunday farmers’ market and lots of al fresco dining options. Here are some new events scheduled for Vail’s warm-weather months, as well as some recently opened restaurants.
Modeled after bike races in Italy, this long-distance event for amateur cyclists August 18-19 will cover plenty of mountain terrain, high elevation gain and some short stints on dirt roads. Spectators will be able to catch the cyclists flying in and out of town; participants of the 120-mile full course or 50-mile short course will enjoy a pasta meal and plenty of Proseco afterwards! The Vail event is part of a national series that includes San Diego, Beverly Hills, Philadelphia, Reno and Miami.
At this two-and-a-half day summit September 13-15, participants explore ways to live longer and healthier through presentations by top fitness, nutrition, psychology and medical experts, plus interactive sessions and opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities in glorious area mountains. An on-hand concierge helps guide each guest to meet his or her health, fitness and longevity goals.
This stellar sushi restaurant in the Solaris complex in the heart of Vail Village opened in late 2011. If you didn’t check it out during your private charter jet trip during ski season, stop in this summer for a meal on the patio, where you can sample outstanding yellowtail, shrimp tempura, and Nobu Matsuhisa’s famous Broiled Black Cod with Miso.
Another restaurant that opened just a few months ago, Elway’s is owned in part by former Denver Bronco quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer John Elway. The steakhouse replaced the oh-so-dated and frou-frou Wildflower restaurant in the Lodge at Vail. This welcome renovation to the space is sleek and modern, and the menu features steaks, seafood, Colorado lamb and a nice array of salads.
