Think fall’s a slow season? No way==========Vail Chamber bug – Rich tenBraak mug=============As the Aspens change their leaves to yellow and the cooler fall weather slowly makes its way in, it means the summer season of Vail is coming to an end. Although things may seem like they are winding down in town, the reality is most businesses are gearing up for the next big season, winter! The turnover from the summer season is always exciting for locals, as the itch for snow starts to grow and grow exponentially by the day. During the next few months, many businesses will be changing their hours for the fall season. The Vail Chamber & Business Association has compiled a list of business hours. The list is available to the public and can be obtained from the chamber.
