This might be for the more adventurous or if you are from Minnesota where we are used to walking along frozen lakes. Take a snowshoe on top of the frozen Gore Creek passing the other Vail hotels and shops in town. But be aware, you will fall through a couple of times (I sure did), but the water is pretty low this time of year so you don’t fall in very far. You can rent snow shoes at most sport shops in town, such as Vail Ski Base. If that isn’t your cup of tea (or cold water), take a free ride up the gondola after 2pm and snowshoe around the top of Vail mountain with the incredible views.
