Vail Legacy Parades Dec. 2022-February 2023

December 30, 2022, January 13, 2023, February 26, 2023 (Vail Legacy Days weekend) 

Vail Legacy Days and parades honor the legacy of the 10th Mountain Division, held in Vail, Colorado. On select Friday evenings in Vail Village, guests are invited to watch skiers dressed in traditional 10th Mountain Division Ski Trooper uniforms perform a Torchlight Ski Down to the base of Gondola One, followed by a parade of military veterans, also in traditional uniform, marching from Gondola One down Bridge Street, across the Covered Bridge and finishing at the 10th Mountain statue. The side of Vail Mountain will be illuminated with the 10th Mountain Division logo, and the celebration will feature a film on the history and legacy of Vail projected at the base of Gondola One and animated with fireworks. Vail’s Colorado Snowsports Museum will stay open after the parades for guests to visit and learn about Colorado’s ski history through the new 10th Mountain Division exhibit– the most comprehensive of its kind in the world.
