Eight and a half miles of paradise. Vail has grown into one of the most famous alpine destinations in the world, hosting more open space than any other resort community in the United States. 350,000 acres of White River National Forest surrounds the town creating a natural wonderland that attracts outdoor enthusiasts globally.
Modeled after a traditional Bavarian village, Vail Village has a welcoming old-world charm with cobblestone streets and covered bridges. With heated streets, world-class restaurants and shops, the town is almost self-contained. With three base areas: Golden Peak, Vail Village and Lionshead, Vail attracts over one million skiers each winter season who revel in over 325 inches of snow.
In winter, skiers and snowboarders ride Gondola One, with its heated, cushioned seats and Wi-Fi, to quickly, and comfortably, access Vail Ski Resort’s world-class terrain.
The most significant snowmaking enhancement project in North America is well under way on Vail Mountain. The first phase of this multi-year snowmaking expansion project will deliver the most legendary early season experience, a more predictable opening date and better late season conditions. Our legendary Back Bowls are now even more accessible with a 30% increase in groomed terrain. There’s more for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re a beginner or intermediate skier wanting to explore more of the mountain, or an expert who can’t get enough corduroy. With the largest network of groomed runs, you are connected to Vail’s legendary terrain from the Front Side to the Back Bowls to Blue Sky Basin.
Vail offers you the complete year-round lifestyle: outdoor sports, culture, dining, shopping, and nightlife all wrapped in the grand wonder of the White River National Forest and the majestic Rocky Mountains.
