Vail is the resort that birthed an empire, and there's no need to look far to see why this resort has attracted so many visitors and inspired so much of the ski industry. From fantastic front-side terrain for every level, to the expansive network of legendary back bowls and the beautiful Blue Sky Basin, Vail's terrain impresses around every turn.
Winter isn't the only time to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery, as the summers are often thought of as the local's favorite. You'll find extensive hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, and more in this outdoor-lover's playground. With mild weather and a reputation for sunny days, Vail is the perfect place to escape oppressive summer heat.
The village itself offers many charms. Visit some of the fabulous restaurants such as Sweet Basil or Root and Flower, or do a little shopping for someone special at the Golden Bear. There's plenty of pampering to be had at the many world-class spas in the area as well.
