How to enjoy Vail

Whether a distant purple shadow as sunset sets the sky alight, or a steep slope that you hope won’t hurt too much as you hurtle to meet it up close, Vail’s Mountain will make its mark on you

  • In summer, the rivers of the Vail Valley are the perfect location for a spot of fly fishing or white water rafting
  • For an unforgettable night out, take the gondola and a snowcat for an exquisite mountain top dinner at Game Creek Restaurant
  • Breathtaking views are on the menu summer and winter. In summer take a back country jeep tour. Enjoy 360 degree views from the top of Eagle-Bahn Gondola all year round

Vail is vast. You could ski all season and never hit the same run twice. Yet despite its size, downtown has a quaint charm. This could be due in part to its European chalet-style architecture which gives it a distinctly Alpine character. To explore further afield, Beaver Creek is just half an hour away down the I90. This beautiful luxury resort has lots of ski in/ski out hotels and restaurants plus wonderful ski concierge services.

Beaver Creek has a relaxed feel and makes the most of its women instructors with complimentary Women’s Tours of the mountain and a Ski Girls Rock, girls-only ski school. What Vail does well is capture all that is good about having fun in the mountains. It reminds us that snow is just magical. Whether it’s the picturesque frosting on evergreens, the crunch it makes signaling your every step, or the feeling of freedom as you glide effortlessly across a newly groomed piste.
