Mountain Top Yoga at Keystone Resort

Rejuvenate your body and soul in (quite, literally) the Colorado Rockies during Keystone’s mountain top summer yoga series. Classes begin in July and are every Saturday at 10:30am on the Overlook Deck. Before heading to the River Run Village, be sure to make a required yoga reservation. All ages/levels are welcome and yoga mats are provided on a first come, first served basis.

Scenic Gondola Rides

Breathe in the cool mountain air and enjoy magical views during a scenic gondola ride at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, or Keystone. Gondolas at all resorts provide access to a plethora of additional mountain-top summer activities, such as the Forest Flyer mountain coaster in Vail, Alpine Slide in Breck, hiking trails in Keystone, and biking in Beaver Creek. Be sure to confirm opening dates for mountains!

Horseback Riding at the Beaver Creek Stables

Beaver Creek offers the best experience for horseback riding in the Vail Valley! You can expect happy, well-taken care of horses and ponies, experienced wrangler guides, and stunning trails lined with wildflowers. Choose from one or two hour rides, a three hour picnic ride, or a ride to Beaver Lake - we recommend the sunset ride to Beano’s Cabin for dinner. Children ages 7 and up can join the horseback ride, while younger kids can test their skills on a pony. Check out Beaver Creek Stables rates and schedules here and make sure to head to EME’s website to schedule a ride to Beaver Creek for the whole family!

Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

Nestled at the base of Vail Mountain, the Gerald R Ford Amphitheater plays host to many cultural and entertainment performances during the summer. Ranging from the renowned dance recitals during the Vail Dance Festival to the Hot Summer Nights free weekly concert series, there is something for everyone. You can also catch major headliners, such as Caamp, Ziggy Marley, Chicago, and Mt. Joy on The Amp stage - make sure to check out their website for new concert announcements, presale offers, and more! Make sure to book an Epic Mountain Express shuttle or private van for added ease – especially when traveling with a group!
