Vail is like no other mountain town in Colorado, people come for the world-class skiing but they stay for the luxurious amenities, stunning terrian and of course those Rocky Mountain views! Vail is located in Eagle County, and is Colorado's largest ski resort, the fourth largest ski resort in North America. Approximately 5,000 people reside permanently in Vail, with another 5,000 living in the Vail Valley part-time.
Vail's pedestrian-friendly villages were created for skiiers, by skiiers and have a large European influence. The Bavarian-inspired villages are modeled after Austrian buildings and chalets which give Vail an otherworldly allure that you can't experience anywhere else!
This luxurious town attracts everyone from the local avid skiers to international celebrities so it's no surprise the après-ski scene is like no other Vail. Bells toll the beginning of this new tradition and it's a fun way after a long day of outdoor activities to explore the cobblestone streets going from one bar or restaurant to another.
The villages are lined with boutiques, high-end shopping, fine dining, and spas, which are connected by heated streets offering a pedestrian-friendly environment.
Lionshead and Vail Village feature everything from pizzerias to world-class dining. You don't have to have deep pockets to experience delicious food in Vail. However, if you are looking for fine-dining, you dont have to look far in Vail to find five-star restaurants.
You might not believe us, but there is more to Vail than ski season. If you have been lucky enough to experience Vail in the summer, you know what we are talking about. Vail is an intoxicating place to be in the summer, the smell of the wildflowers and clean Rocky Mountain air can leave you in a trance! Some of the state's most beautiful trails are located in and around Vail which provide amazing hiking and biking opportunites for those looking for a challenge.
But that being said, come to Vail for the winter and ski, you won't regret it! Ski at Vail or nearby Beaver Creek Resort
