We didn't like Vail much. It was a quiet little "town" that seemed to consist of a bunch of condos and a ski area.

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.

Keystone is a pretty area, and definitely a haven for the outdoorsy. Skiing and boarding in the winter is possible with a few local mountains, including the aptly named Keystone Mountain. I suspect it is nice for hiking and biking in the summer season, but I have yet to see it during that season.
