There are plenty of great options in the Vail Valley for those looking for non-skiing or snowboarding options during your trip.

Head up the gondola in Lionshead to play in the afternoon and well into the night at Adventure Ridge with ski bikes, a mountain coaster, rip-roaring tubing lanes and more.
