Off Season – A Best Kept Secret in Vail

Just because the mountain has closed, the snow is melting and the trees are blooming doesn’t mean the entire Vail Valley is closed! There are plenty of activities to enjoy and plenty of deals to be had. Here are some of the local’s favorite offseason secrets.

Dining Out

Now is the time to try Vail Valley restaurants at a discounted price. Many restaurants offer two for one entrée, 50% off entrées or discounts on the wine list. An all-time local favorite is Terra Bistro, in Vail Village, which features 50% off their entrée selection. A best-kept secret at Terra Bistro is their “Appy Hour” which actually takes place throughout the year, apps are 50% off and drink specials are offered. La Tour, also located in Vail Village has all lunch entrées for $12.95 and 50% off dinner entrées. Sitting outside at La Tour for lunch on a beautiful spring day is the perfect way to enjoy lunch with friends and family.

Be sure to make a reservation for dinner at both locations. A down valley favorite in Edwards is the Gas House. You will receive 30% off dinner entrees (the fried chicken is a favorite, be ready to either share or take half it home with you! Yes, it’s that much food) and 30% off all bottles of wine. The Gas House is an Eagle County institution, your entire family will enjoy the décor of an old cabin feeling and yes this was the original Gas Station in Edwards as well as a hitching post. A lot of restaurants do add 18% gratuity to the original bill before discount is applied, do watch for that.

Spa Day!

Who doesn’t love getting a deal on spa treatments? Vail has some of the best spas around. A favorite is the Vail Mountain Lodge Spa, located in the same building as Terra Bistro. The Spa has 30% off 50-minute treatments and 40% off 75-100 minute treatments. Head to Spa Anjali in the Westin Riverfront Avon for a 50-minute massage or facial for $119, 75 minutes $139 and 100 minutes for $179. Get a new spring/summer hairdo at “Hair Happy Hour” at the Westin Riverfront Salon for 20% off between 1:00 – 4:00. Book your day at the spa, relax, unwind and pamper yourself.
