Take a trip to Vail Village on select Friday evenings this season for the 10th Mountain Legacy Parades! Here guests can enjoy watching skiers in traditional 10th Mountain Division Ski Trooper uniforms carry torches down the mountain to the base of Gondola One. This Torchlight Parade is followed by a parade of military vets in uniform marching down Bridge Street, across the Covered Bridge and finally finishing things off at the 10th Mountain statue.
