Vail in May


My husband and I are heading to Vail at the end of May. It seems that this is before the summer season. Is there much going on during this time?

There isn't much going on and a lot of shops and restaurants are closed until Memorial Day weekend. You can still hike and explore other towns.

As noted, pretty early. You'll find enough to do but it will be pretty quiet until sometime in June. While there will be some closures, you'll still find enough restaurants and hotels open. Lots to explore in the area.

Have fun.

Definitely Shoulder Season ~ Are your dates set in stone?

Of course exploring Vail Village itself is a one-of-a-kind experience!

Nearby are Beaver Creek & Avon.

Golf / Rafting / Fly Fishing may be options ~ or it could still be mud season for Hiking / Golf / ATV / Mountain Biking /

Drive to nearby small towns featuring quaint attractions.

I ❤️ Leadville & its fascinating history ~ worthy of a day trip.

Thanks all! Yes, our dates area set and we'll also be bringing our almost 9 month old. So we aren't planning too much other than some light hikes and sight seeing.
