By Regan Dickinson,

If you’re looking for something to do Friday afternoon that studiously avoids the heat, headaches and traffic of the Denver area, you might want to consider Vail Mountain’s Friday Afternoon Club (FAC).

The seasonal FAC concerts start at 5 p.m. at Talon’s Deck Grill on the Eagle’s Nest. The concert series runs until August 30

All FAC performances are free, and if you’re a 2013-2014 pass holder ( the ride up the Eagle Bahn Gondola to get to the Eagle’s Nest is free.

If you don’t have a pass, you can pick up a twilight gondola ticket after 4 p.m., which includes a $10 credit voucher you can use for on-mountain food and beverage at Talon’s Deck Grill or Bistro Fourteen, or toward Adventure ridge activities. You can also hop on a complimentary shuttle to Game Creek and use the voucher for sunset appetizers and drinks on Game Creek Restaurant’s deck.

The last ride up the Eagle Bahn Gondola is at 9 p.m., and all FACs this summer are from 5-9 p.m. Here’s the summer FAC band lineup…
