Vail is first and foremost a ski area, offering an unparalleled skiing and snowboarding experience to all. One visit to Vail’s legendary Back Bowls and you will understand the logo “like nothing on earth”. There is terrain for all ability levels, top notch instruction, and so many trails, named and unnamed, that you could ski a different run all day long.
While the skiing is certainly epic so is the town. Vail Village sits at the base of the mountain and offers a lively après ski, fantastic restaurants, great shopping, luxurious spas, world class hotels and resorts, and luxury homes. A pedestrian village you can truly enjoy a ski vacation thoroughly in Vail and never have to drive unless you want to. Lionshead is Vail’s second Village, at the base of the Eagle Bahn Gondola. Lionshead is a charming village offering great access up the mountain, fantastic shopping and some great restaurants.
