We enjoyed virtually every aspect of our week at Antlers at Vail. The location is outstanding with easy access to the gondola, shopping, restaurants and walking along Gore Creek.
Gore Creek cuts through the town of Vail and the base villages of both Vail and Lionshead providing a natural resource perfect for whitewater adventures and fly fishing. White River National Forest abuts the Town of Vail. With 1,100 acres of preserved open space and 15 miles of paved recreation paths that connect to a variety of hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as Vail Pass Trail to the east and Eagle Valley trail to the west, there is no shortage of fabulous mountain biking and hiking trails as well as miles and miles of open road for road bikers.
