It’s summer in Vail when weather warms, the snow melts, the aspen leaves pop bright with green and wildflowers bloom into colorful alpine fields. Thanks to its natural beauty and bounty of experiences, activities and attractions, Vail is equally popular mountain destination in the summer as it is during the winter. Boasting daytime average highs around 75 degrees and an abundance of sunshine, Vail offers gorgeous summer conditions for warm-weather mountain adventures.
Vail in the summer
Vail is a paradise for mountain biking and hiking, both of which can be accessed via the Lionshead gondola. Vail Village hosts a lovely Saturday farmer’s market, where local artists, farmers and jewelers showcase their goods. Vail’s shopping and dining is even more enjoyable in the warmer months as visitors can enjoy the sunshine and beautiful flowers that dot the villages as they peruse the shops and experience patio dining.
