Minturn is a diamond in the rough. If you are staying in the Vail/Eagle area, it is a small local town just a few minutes up the road with one main street, but lots of character.

Resolution Bowl is basically heaven on earth! It's the best of the summit county resorts but the least known.

We spent the weekend in Carbondale and the valley. A quaint town with charm and character. Once you get off of Hwy 82 and head towards Main Street the small town feel is evident and appreciated!
