The Spirit of the Season in Avon

Nutcracker Avon CO

Where better to spend the holiday season than in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado?

With winter sports galore and that festive-feeling of being surrounded by beautiful lights and decorations, Avon is the perfect place to enjoy the holidays. With amazing early-season conditions that feel like mid-winter, you can shred the slopes of Beaver Creek mountain or nearby Vail before relaxing at one of the local luxury hotel spas. Holiday performances at the Vilar Performing Arts Center offer fun for the whole family and will create memories that last a lifetime.
