Vail, CO – The inaugural year of “Summer Solstice” will kick off at the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa on June 19. The resort will offer outdoors adventures, poolside activities, spa and dining specials, and much more. The event will also include snow cones and miniature remote control “yacht races” in the infinity pool for the younger crowd.

Workshops in yoga and couples massages will also be available, and special sessions on everything from kayaking to self-defense lessons will be offered as well.

A focus on human wellness will be highlighted by a series of speakers, including subjects such as meditation, life coaching and nutrition.

The entire property will be teeming with Solstice flavor. Accordingly, there will be special summer opportunities at the resort’s signature restaurant, Atwater on Gore Creek. This authentic restaurant utilizes the best Colorado has to offer, with “field to table” dinners created from items purchased fresh at the local farmer’s market.

Also at night there will be the return of Candlelight Night, an evening of dining lit only by flickering candles. This occasion will not only help reduce the impact of energy use, but it will also benefit the Habitat for Humanity foundation, with 10% of the evening’s proceeds that will be donated to the local chapter of the charity.

Lodging packages are presented to fit any Summer Solstice visitor needs, including special “Colorado Resident” rates, a tennis package, “Stay two get one free”, and many other options.

Come check out the Vail Cascade Resort, a property managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts.
