As Rocky Mountain Westerners know, the higher the winter snow totals, the bigger spring’s blooming bounty of wildflowers. As Colorado’s 2022/23 ski season with its heavy snowfall – Vail was already boasting over 15 feet by January – draws to a close, the Antlers at Vail hotel is preparing to welcome spring and summer’s colorful blanket of blossoms with a new peak-posies package at a special rate. From June 11 – August 20, 2023, guests can book the “Wildflower Power Package” at the Antlers at Vail and enjoy a (minimum) two-night stay at rates starting from $319/night for an Antlers studio condominium and including a roundup of flower-forward goodies and activities. As Tom Petty famously sang, “You belong among the wildflowers.”
“Wildflower Power” guests can visit the the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens (don’t miss downloading the gardens’ free Alpine Wildflower Finder app), receive $50 to spend at the popular Root & Flower with its imaginative offerings of fine wines, clever botanical-inspired craft cocktails and accompanying snacks, as well as a complimentary bottle of wine waiting in the Antlers suite; take a guided wildflower walk (weather and schedule permitting) with Walking Mountains Science Center to view and learn about such wild local flora as the state-flower columbine, fireweed and bluebells; and bring home a packet of Colorado wildflower seeds as a memento to plant and continue the floral fun.
Recently named to a shortlist of “Best in Vail” accommodations by British newspaper The Telegraph and website msn.com, the Antlers at Vail occupies a beautiful spot on Gore Creek, just steps from Vail Mountain Resort’s Eagle Bahn gondola and the boutiques and dining establishments of Vail’s Lionshead Village. The family-friendly condominium hotel is known for its welcoming staff, long list of complimentary amenities and comfy-luxe guest suites – each with a full kitchen, dining area, spacious living room with fireplace, and a private balcony, as well as a year-round outdoor pool and hot tubs in a naturalized setting surrounded by wildflowers in the summer.
The Antlers at Vail’s new “Wildflower Power Package” is offered June 11 – August 20, 2023, based on availability.

The package includes a complimentary bottle of wine, choice of red or white, in the guest’s suite; a $50 gift card to Root & Flower; and a packet of wildflower seeds to take home.
