Step into the Vail Valley, and you’re in another world altogether. This world doesn’t operate on schedules or deadlines, it doesn’t revolve around the bottom line or that big deal. Here, the only schedule you’ll keep is when to get on the lift, the only deadline, when the last run of the day will be. The world here revolves prettily around the staggering mountain that towers above town.
Winter in Vail is something you will never forget. World class skiing and snowboarding has earned the little village international fame. Dog sledding, snowmobiling on some of the best groomed terrain nearby, snowshoeing or relaxing in one of the hundreds of cafes are popular pastimes when the snows fly. Come summer, mountain bike trails around the town open, as well as the gondola on the mountain to sweep you up to the most extreme downhill mountain biking and backcountry hiking in National Forest. Scenic drives, fly fishing the Arkansas and whitewater rafting and kayaking will keep you busy in the warmer months. Spring brings free concerts near the end of ski season which draws international celebrities and Vail is transformed into a living creature at night.
There’s something for everyone in Vail. Tucked away in the majesty of the Rockies, a few hours from Denver, it’s everything you want in a vacation. Your perfect trip is just a click away.
