About Vail

Vail, Colorado is nestled at the base of Vail Ski Mountain in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and surrounded by White River National Forest. It is easily accessible from Denver International Airport via I-70 approximately 100 miles to the west or via Eagle County Regional Airport also via I-70 approximately 30 miles east. At 8150 feet in elevation, Vail is a spectacular mountain town with bountiful recreational opportunities from skiing, snowboarding, ski biking, tubing, sledding, ice skating and even ice climbing to hiking, biking, jeeping, mountain climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding and horseback riding to wildlife watching. Vail is home to the highest botanical gardens in the world, as well as the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum and host to some of the world’s best orchestras, musicians and performers at the spectacular Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and intimate Vilar Performing Arts Center. The Vail community has built up an enviable calendar of Vail events, with something for everyone, from adventure races to wine & food events to cultural events that rival any large metropolitan area yet set in a quaint alpine town. Vail may be best known for its epic ski resort but has much more to offer. As local residents like to say, “We came for the winter, but stayed for the summer.”
