Truly a great alternative to have in the heart of downhill ski country! They offer a very nice nordic shop, rentals, and trails. We snowshoed and fat-biked at this facility and enjoyed both activities immensely. Very well run with courteous staff.

We rode the shuttle from our hotel to the Vail Nordic Center. They did, however, seem to have ample parking if you prefer to drive. We paid $10 each for a pass. We snowshoed for about 90 minutes on nicely groomed trails on a lovely...More
