Vail Family Holidaze wraps up on Monday night with New Years activities for the whole family. Enjoy a favorite Vail tradition with the torchlight parade on Golden Peak starting at 6:15 p.m. The torchlight parade will be immediately followed by a fireworks display that will light up the night sky over Vail Mountain. After the fireworks, families are invited to the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola to Adventure Ridge for the Family New Years celebration. The gondola ride and select activities at Adventure Ridge are complimentary and packages will be available to purchase that will include discounted dinner and activities to keep the fun going throughout the evening. All children at the Family New Year’s celebration must be accompanied by an adult.
