Located just eight miles west of Vail, Avon is both casual and classy. Family-friendly and rightly known as the “Heart of the Valley,” this small mountain town is booming with energy. For the true outdoor enthusiast there is no better place than Colorado. It is the ultimate year-round destination, and playground for the rich and famous. The Rocky Mountains offer every type of skiing you can imagine, and the hiking, biking and rafting have visitors return year after year. Dog sledding and horseback riding provide a memorable time for family and friends, with an Apres ski, hot cocoa and cocktails finishing off the night.
