Set among ponderosas and snow-capped mountain peaks, Vail Cascade palpitates at the center of Colorado's mountain-recreation scene. About 5 miles east of the hotel, White River National Forest is awash with crystal-clear waters and flower-flecked meadows that sit below the towering Rocky Mountains. The 2.3-million-acre woodland plays host to innumerable wildlife habitats and recreational ventures, allowing travelers to take in fresh mountain breezes while biking, fishing, or stacking boulders. Travelers may also tote their tackle boxes to the nearby Vail Nature Center for fly-fishing tutorials, guided hikes, and photography classes in 7 acres of meadows.Dwarf evergreens, crocuses, and waterfalls lend to the meditative vibe at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, which retains its status as one of the highest-altitude botanical gardens in the world. After a day of alpine adventures, sylvan sojourners can stop at the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum to learn about the evolution of icy sports. On Wednesdays and Sundays, historic Vail Village walking tours branch out from the museum and wind throughout its notable thoroughfares.

Located in Colorado's White River National Forest at the base of Vail Mountain, Vail is best known for its world-class skiing and its mountain's seven snow-filled back bowls. That said, the area presents an exhilarating backdrop for the summer as well, especially for mountain biking, horseback riding, and paragliding. Another summer draw is the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, less than a 10-minute walk from the lodge. After Memorial Day, you can take a guided tour through these mountaintop botanical gardens, waterfalls, and rock formations.Inspired by the Swiss ski town of Zermatt, Vail Village is steeped in European charm. Bavarian-style bistros, art galleries, and rustic chalets line the village’s cobblestone streets, where the lack of cars adds a tinge of peaceful solitude.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
