Canyon Run is twenty minutes from Vail and ten minutes from Beaver Creek by car. The complimentary bus to the new chairlift and bus connections to Vail and Beaver Creek stops in front of Canyon Run. The gondola is a five to seven minute walk along the Eagle River. Starbucks, Burger King and a bakery are half a block away. Restaurants and other stores are five minutes away, as are soccer and volleyball fields and a beautiful lake that provides skating in winter and is next to a water park for swimming in the summer.
We are Neil and Fonya Helm and we enjoy skiing and playing golf in the Vail Valley. Neil is a retired space scientist, and Fonya is a clinical psychologist, who continues her practice.
The condo is warm and cozy in the winter with a gas fireplace to provide extra heat, and the deck provides afternoon sun. In the spring and summer, when you can sleep with the window open, you can hear the soothing ripples of the Eagle River as you drift off to sleep. The deck is perfect for watching rafters and kayakers as they come down the river. You can walk to the gondola in five to seven minutes, and it will take you up the mountain to a chair lift and Beaver Creek Resort.
We enjoy the skiing and golf in the Vail Valley immensely. The skiing is the best in the world, providing with Beaver Creek and Vail Mountains an extensive area and a variety of terrain. The snow conditions are consistently very good to excellent. The number of golf courses is amazing, both public and private, and they are usually cool and pleasant.
Special outdoor programs in the summer at the Gerald Ford Amphitheatre in Vail, ten miles away on Route 70.
