History of Vail

Vail's 50th Anniversary is a celebration of all who have traveled here and contributed to what Vail is today. Whether you traveled here to ski in the 1970's, stopped by to hike and mountain bike in the 1990's, worked a winter in the 1980's, or have been spending family holidays at one of our luxuriousVail hotels every year since the resort was founded, we want this celebration to have something for you! See the Vail 50th Anniversary Event page for updates and timelines of events
