Family Fun in the Vail Valley

The Vail Valley attracts families from all over the world to ski and snowboard Vail and Beaver Creek, 2 of North Americas most boasted about ski resorts. Parents hit the slopes all day and send the kids to ski school, everyone gets to experience skiing and riding at its best! But we all know you came to the Vail to experience a family vacation, and finding activities that the entire family can participate in can be tricky. Your family may not all be expert skiers, the kids might be too young for snowmobiling adventures, and maybe the grandparents have accompanied the vacation and they do not ski. For those of you looking for family fun, you can all do together on your family vacation think Bearcat's Cabin!

Bearcat's Cabin sleigh ride and dinner experience is perfect for families of all ages. We do have any age or ability restrictions, just a fun experience for everyone. Our sleigh rides start right as the apres scene is getting going, but you can't take your kids to hang out in a bar while you sip back on a few frosty brews! Come on out for a sleigh ride with us, and we promise you can still get your frosty brew with us, or try one of our signature cocktails- I recommend the Cowboy Handwarmer.

If Apres Ski is not your thing, but a soak in the hot tub is, then try us out for dinner! We offer 2 nightly seating's at 5:30 and 7:30, each start with a 25 minute sleigh ride. Once you are back from the sleigh ride and taking pictures with our wonderful team of horses enter a piece of Colorado history in Bearcat's Cabin. A 3 course world class dinner is prepared by the Timberhearth Grill and offers a healthy selection that is sure to please everyone. Our children's menu will delight and you don't want to miss the mac n cheese- we see all you kids at heart taking a heaping scoop of the cheesy goodness- and we're glad you do!
