Looking for something different in Vail? Why not try some cross country skiing. Just a couple of minutes East of town is the Vail Golf Course. During the winter it becomes the home of the Vail Nordic Center where they rent cross country ski equipment, Skate skies and snow shoes. Pay a small “track fee” ($8) and head out on the trails. They even have separate trails for snow shoes and cross country skiers. We have had some spring like weather the last week but the trails are still in top notch condition. If you don’t have a car to get to the Nordic center, perhaps someone at the desk can give you a quick ride in the Antlers van.
