Instagram Worthy Spots

Places that provide extraordinary views and pictures

Image - Hanging Lake

Image - Holy Cross Event Deck
Holy Cross Event Deck
Juniper Vacation Rentals:The best views from the mountain are from this viewing deck! Just at the top of the Lionshead gondola.
Image - Blue Sky Basin
Blue Sky Basin
Juniper Vacation Rentals:Belle's Camp at the top of Blue Skye Basin is a famous spot for locals to grill out for lunch on a sunny warmer day. It's bring your own food (there's minimal food in the hut) and alcohol is allowed since it's within a state park. Just be careful because it's expert only (easiest run is a blue) back with no downloading available. And go early if you want a table or plan to share.
Image - Piney Lake
Piney Lake
Juniper Vacation Rentals:CLOSED WINTERS. Arguably the most beautiful and picturesque lake near Vail. It's only 10miles, but up a dirt road with many potholes. So plan for it to take about an hour to get there, but it's worth it for hikes, fishing, canoeing, SUPing, and more! There's a restaurant and ice cream shop too :)
