Spending time in the great outdoors is not only a way to escape from the stress of every day life, it also provides an easy opportunity to reconnect with loved ones through a simple shared experience. Skiing through the mountains is a primary draw for visitors to Vail Village, but now The Sonnenalp Hotel is offering new ways to enjoy a daycation on the mountain.
Sonnenalp Snowshoe Adventure
Whether your group is looking for a unique apres ski activity, or want to get a bit of exercise before having some fun, the Snowshoe Adventure allows everyone to enjoy the beautiful snowy landscape outside, fully stocked with plenty of wine and an outdoor fire pit to keep you warm.*
*Depending on weather conditions and location.
Groups begin with leisurely snowshoeing through the mountains that lead to a custom-built snow lounge to accommodate the party size. There, the group will be greeted with finger foods like shrimp cocktail and a meat and cheese plate, and bottles of wine and beer.
Guests can either continue to snowshoe and explore the area, or simply relax next to the fire pit and enjoy the views of the gorgeous Rocky Mountains.
Enjoy this experience for $225 per person, which includes transportation, gear, lunch, wine, guides and guide gratuity.
