Don't let our late-spring snowstorm (and powder skiing at A-Basin) distract you: June is just around the corner and with it, the possibility of more reliable weather. From family friendly fun to events that will ensure that you break a sweat - here are our top picks to keep you busy this weekend.
Saturday, May 20
Ride Avon First!
11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., 1 Lake Street, Avon
Join the Town of Avon for the inaugural Ride Avon First! outdoors festival. From hiking to mountain biking and music to food, this event pretty much has it all. While the little ones enjoy the kids’ mountain bike skills course, face painters and a balloon artist, mom and dad can kick back with beer and wine provided by the Humane Society. Cheers to that! avon.org

Aroma Flow Yoga With Nicola Farrer
9:30 to 11 a.m., Vail Mountain Lodge, Vail

All levels are welcome as class-goers explore the potential to strengthen the connection through body and mind - leaving you refreshed and (hopefully) keeping the 'Sunday scaries' at bay.
