The Talon’s Grill will be fired up to serve $4 burgers, cups of chili and chili dogs and $4 Budweiser and Bud Light draft beer.

There also will be free marshmallow roasting around the fire pit.

A naturalist from the Gore Range Natural Science School will be available on Friday. Located in an all-seasons yurt adjacent to the Eagle Bahn Gondola atop Vail Mountain, the Nature Discovery Center provides an array of free natural history exhibits and artifacts related for Vail Mountain from animal tracks to the mountain pine bark beetle.

The rebound trampoline at Adventure Ridge will be open for the holiday weekend, Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for just $5 per session.
