Friday, September 7, 2012, by Lauren Hendrick

Weekends in the Colorado mountains are paradise year-round, weather it's enjoying the temperate days of summer, crisp mornings of fall, or chilly expeditions plowing through some of the best snow pack in the world.

Vail Village is definitely a tourist destination, and Eater is here with a guide for nine of Vail's gem restaurants.
