Winter in Vail
A PLACE WHERE POSSIBILITIES ARE LIMITLESS
DARE TO DISCOVER
The mountains have a way of shaping you; bringing out the strength in yourself that you never knew existed. Vail is reserved for the bold, are you ready to discover what it holds for you?
Vail’s wide variety of terrain, back bowls, and 5,317 skiable acres are one-of-a-kind. Paired with pristine conditions, skiing Vail is truly like no mountain you’ve experienced before.
Thanks to the magical combination of averaging more than 300+ days of sunshine and 370+ inches of snow each year, plus majestic, only-in-Vail views of the surrounding Gore and Sawatch mountain ranges, the phrase "Like nothing on Earth" comes to life before your very eyes
Step into Vail Village and feel like you’re worlds away. Drink in the European vibe and explore the alpine-inspired architecture as you stroll the heated, cobblestone streets.
From casual to fine dining, and high-end shops to award-winning hotels, Vail’s Villages will charm you from your first step.
Lifestyle & Culture
Life in Vail is so much more than skiing and boarding (although that’s a big part). From culinary events to film festivals and athletic competitions, Vail provides high-class entertainment and events year-round.
World-renowned musicians and dancers travel from far and wide to perform in Vail. We host festivals, orchestras, concerts and ballets at the stunning Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in the summer, and slope-side concerts in the winter.
Vail has been committed to excellence since opening in 1962, which can be seen both on the mountain and in its Villages.
We are always finding ways to improve the guest experience to ensure that you have the vacation of a lifetime. We’ve upgraded 9 ski lifts in 10 years—including the addition of Gondola One—increased our grooming acreage, debuted new luxury lodging options and more.
