First and foremost, Vail is known for its unique and vast ski terrain. Visitors from all over the world come to Vail for its one of a kind experience. Vail Ski Resort opened for its first season in December of 1962 and is the largest ski mountain in Colorado. During it’s construction, Vail was modeled after the European town of Zermatt Switzerland. Several Austrian, Swiss, and other European style buildings remain the centerpieces of Vail today. It began with a population of about 480 people in 1970. Today, however, millions of people visit Vail each year. Vail Mountain rises from 8,120 feet to 11,570 feet, giving a vertical rise of 3,450 feet. It has a 5,289 acres of skiable area, 33 ski lifts, and 193 marked skiing trails on three faces: the front side, the back bowls, and Blue Sky Basin. Surrounding the Vail Valley are The Gore Range mountains, which are stunning and can make you feel small in such a large landscape.
Skiing is the largest attraction to Vail and also the most well known. If you prefer not to travel with your ski equipment, or are new to the sport, you will find several ski rental shops and retail stores in Vail to accommodate your needs. Within Vail Village and Lionshead Village, you will also find ice skating rinks and rental shops. These skating facilities add another element to family vacations and winter activities in Vail. After a long day of skiing, Vail has many activities to offer during the evenings. A few examples of evening activities include the bowling alley, movie theater, and live music concerts.
Vail is home to restaurants fit for all types of people, from sandwich shops to high end fine dining restaurants. Whether you’re looking for modern American, Italian, Nepalese, or French cuisine, Vail has it all! In addition to various restaurants in town, Vail offers gourmet restaurants that are located directly on the ski mountain. These restaurants are easily accessible and you can ski right to them in the middle of your ski day. As far as the fine dining restaurants are concerned, you are wise to make a reservation ahead of time as they tend to fill up fast!
In addition to skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports, Vail is beautiful and exciting all year round. The summers in Vail are like no other but last only a few months. Therefore, it is important to soak up every minute of summer in Vail. Summertime brings many tourists to Vail for hiking, biking, golfing, white water rafting, and other outdoor activities. There are over a dozen golf courses located right in the Vail Valley. White water rafting is a popular spring and summertime activity because the Colorado River offers 6 classes of rapids. There are a few companies offering guided white water rafting experiences. Colorado is home to 58 mountain peaks that exceed 14,000 feet above sea level. One of those 14ers, Mount of the Holy Cross, is located right in Vail’s backyard. This is not a hike for beginners, but a challenging and rewarding hike to the peak with amazing views. Another unique summer activity in Vail is mountain horseback riding. This is offered at several locations and offers visitors a chance to explore and enjoy views of The Gore Range from a natural point of view.
