Aug. 9-13 kids from ages 6-14 years old through zip-lines, cargo nets, obstacles, rappelling, mud-pits, hiking, biking and more. Considered to be one of the coolest kids races on the planet, Vail’s race will be a qualifier for the National Championships to debut in spring 2018 in Vail.

This year’s race will feature new obstacles, courses and the long anticipated ‘Family Quest’ where a parent and child can try out the course together. Vail is the marquee event in the 8 race nationwide series.

Located near Avon, Beaver Lakes is a roughly 4.8 mile moderate hike. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until October. So now is a great time for YOU to get out there and check it out for yourself! Also, dogs are welcome but encouraged to stay on leash!

The water is refreshing and if you’re lucky, you may just see some wildlife grazing!

For more information on our favorite local ‘to-do’s’ feel free to reach out to me at Maxine@GatewayLand.com or visit me in the lovely Vail Village.  Our Gateway Land and Development Real Estate office is conveniently located above the International Bridge.

Vail with no snow

Warm, dry weather has pushed Vail Mountain’s opening to November 25th, 2016 and Beaver Creek’s opening is still planned for November 23rd.  The temperatures have been in the mid-60’s which has made snow making a challenge.  Keystone is still set to open on Friday.  Copper Mountain is also scheduled to open on Friday and Breckenridge will open on Saturday.  There is snow in the forecast for Thursday and colder temperatures.

The Vail Valley Foundation said that the Audi Birds of Prey World Cup race is currently planned to continue as normal which is scheduled for November 29th through December 4th.  They will have more details on the snow control reports on Friday.  Ultimately, it will be up to the International Ski Federation to decide whether to postpone the race depending on the weather forecasts and the snowmaking ability.

We have all been enjoying the warm weather but it’s time for the snow to arrive.  Think Snow!
