Welcome To Vail, Colorado

"A Culinary World Class Resort Destination"

Vail is located in the stunning central Rocky Mountains just 30 miles east of Eagle, Colorado, and just 100 miles west of Denver, Colorado, The town was established and built as the base village to Vail Ski Resort and is the largest ski mountain in Colorado. Only 4.5 square miles once there though you realize it's much bigger than it looks!

Vail may be known for its world class skiing but this resort destination offers visitors so much more. The small town feel and european touches gives these charming villages a must on your bucket list. Exploring the three villages is more of a weekend getaway than a one day event.

Vail Village offers world class restaurants, shopping, cafes and late night hot spots with heated streets in the winter (only found in Vail) that makes for an easy walk up Bridge Street to Gondola One.

Lionshead Village has an Austrian inpired style and is a 10-15 minute walk from Vail Village. Closed off to cars and buses, the Eagle Bahn gondola provides easy access to the slopes, and there’s a free shuttle to Vail Village. Lionhead Village is closer to the mountains and offers numerous restaurants, shops and an outdoor ice rink.

Golden Peak is home to Gopher Hill beginners’ ski area and a ski school. Out of the three this is the most peaceful place to stay, while the shops, restaurants and ski lift of Vail Village are within easy walking distance.
