    Walking Mountains Science Center was a great experience. While only a short walk from 'downtown' Avon, it holds beautiful grounds, quality facilities and extremely helpful staff. I participated in the free Nature Walk on the grounds, and our guide Reese gave us an great experience -- informative, easy going, and accommodating. I will have to budget more time next visit to try out one of the other Walking Mountains tours they offer!

    We had our 2 and 6 year old grandsons staying with us. We needed a pool. So, we went to the Rec Center and got a 25 visit punch card. Our 6 year old enjoyed the water slide. There are 3 different pools and a lazy river. All is indoors. Their mom could work-out, while we watched the boys in the pool. Very close to a very fun playground too.

    Scheduled a x country ski lesson for my last day with my family skiing at BC & Vail. After reading other reviews I was worried about my experience. I was happily surprised. We had 8+ inches of snow the day before. The trails at the top of the strawberry park express were groomed and a private learning area for me with my “group” instructor Sarah. I ended up with a private lesson.

    Sarah was pleasantly surprised at the conditions and told me about the challenges of ungroomed trails or snowshoe of snowmobile paths across the ski grooved trails. I totally agree with other reviewers that BC needs to make grooming this area a priority or advertise the lesson as back-country and ungroomed.

    I learned about what to look for in equipment, should I upgrade the skis I inherited. We worked on general form, Traversing hills Both up and down and did several loops on a short trail. Sarah paid attention to my ability level and when I was winded we stopped and chatted for a minute or 2 before continuing.

    I believe my downhill skills made this first cross country lessen easier than if I was new to skiing altogether. I had the use of the skis after lunch at no additional charge which was an unexpected perk and I went back up to practice what i learned.

    It was disappointing to see that the McCoy area is a mixed use area which is intimidating at best and could be dangerous for inexperienced skiers- downhill and xcountry. Perhaps there could be signage and separation? I did NOT go to that area as a first timer for the reasons stated by others.

    Finally, I received an email the day of my lesson telling me to arrive at 8:30 to pick up equipment for a group lesson at 9. That apparently is inaccurate as my group lesson began at 10. I thought it was at 10 but when the email arrived I went early and ended up waiting. This was inconvenient and my husband found it to be far more irritating because it changed our meet up plans. This should be an easy fix for BC . There is no way to confirm the time after receiving that early morning email.

    For me a great experience!

    Tough course first time playing. Staff was excellent...until the very end when we were sitting and relaxing and the head pro decided to come over and lecture us about pace of play. Yes, we were slower, but not as slow as he tried to tell us. And HARD course, first time playing. Twosome behind us. We would have gladly let them play through, but we truly never felt pushed. I paid way too much money to be spoken down to like that.

    On the first tee, our local playing partner set the stage for what was to come. He stated “I am a member here, the course is beautiful, there isn’t a flat fairway or green on the course, check your Florida egos at the door because if you aren’t a 5 handicap (which I am not) this course is going to eat your lunch..... And it did! Beautiful, YES! Miserable, YES! His advice was to play Vail or Beaver Creek and that is exactly what we will do when we return.

    As a result of a presentation by the Vail Valley Art Guild on Photography we found out about the Art of the Valley Gallery. As one can imagine, there are many talented amateur and professional artists and photographers in this beautiful environment of mountains, rivers, lakes, and valleys. This is where some of their art is charmingly displayed and available for sale. It is always amazing to us, how talented creative people are! The presenter at our lecture told us that to be a good photographer/artist, one should look at lots of photographs/artworks! This is a good place to do so! It's a little difficult to find, so don't be discouraged. Know that it is right beside the Avon Theatres. It would be helpful if the gallery displayed a colorful flag or something outside, to let people know easily, where they're located.

    We did a week in Avon & split with time in Steamboat too. We were in all the different weather elements during our time there… That experience coming from Houston area was amazing. The towns weren’t crowded as the unofficial start of their summer tourist season doesn’t begin until Memorial weekend. This meant the ski villages were closed up for summer business and less people on hiking trails and in the stores & few restaurants that were open. We’re more of a summer time tourist to Colorado and this was a fantastic time for us vs other summer times we’ve visited. Locals were great and welcoming vs tired & distracted. The wildlife also out in full swing with less folks pushing them into the back woods seeking refuge so we saw a lot of first for us too.

    I was visiting the Vail area and was very impressed with this Bible-based, friendly church with an excellent worship team and message and more.

    Our experience here was incredible! The gentleman who ran it was so helpful and kind. We really had such a great experience. He even helped us with information about the area as well, because we are looking into moving down there.
