Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado ” Residents of Colorado’s Vail Valley like to spend as much time on the mountain as possible. So why head downhill to worship? A gondola or chair lift can whisk believers to several Easter services planned on Beaver Creek or Vail mountains.

For those who prefer to worship at slightly lower elevations, there are plenty of regular church services throughout the Vail Valley.

Read on for a list of local Easter services.
