When people think skiing
in Colorado, Vail is often the first town that comes to mind.
Located in the Vail Valley, in the heart of the Colorado Rockies,
it's a town created by and for skiing.
Vail is one of the largest
ski areas in the U.S. with great terrain for all ability levels.
This European Mountain Village offers fine dining and nightlife
for all budgets.
Great skiing and
snowboarding in the winter, and championship golf, hiking, biking,
white water rafting, kayaking, and fishing in the spring, summer
and fall offers something for every vacationer.
The town is home to a
number of big annual events, including a food and wine festival,
the World Alpine Ski Championships, a huge July 4th extravaganza,
nationally known summer music and dance festivals and a locally
loved rubber ducky race.
Local area attractions
include the Holy Cross Wilderness Area, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens
and neighboring towns of Avon and Beaver Creek.
