Top Reasons to Visit Vail


Vail’s wide variety of terrain, back bowls, and 5,289 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, the phrase "Like nothing on Earth" comes to life before your very eyes.


The lifestyle and culture at Vail is so much more than skiing and boarding (although that’s a big part). Vail provides high-class entertainment and events year-round, from culinary events to film festivals and athletic competitions. World-renowned musicians and dancers travel far and wide to perform at Vail. In the summer months, we host festivals, orchestras, concerts and ballets at the stunning Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Come winter, experience slope-side concerts and our end-of-season celebration, Spring Back to Vail.  




Step into Vail Village and you feel like you’re in another world. As you stroll on the heated cobblestone streets, drink in the European vibe and explore the alpine-inspired architecture, Vail Village will charm you from your first step. And our impeccable service ensures you’ll be right at home through it all.


From high-class restaurants to local pubs, our dining and après scenes run the gamut. Only in Vail can you cheers with the Vail ski patrol and eat some of the best sushi in the world all in one night. You’ll never tire of options and wish you had more time to hit every landmark spot you’ve heard about. But that’s just more reason to come back again.
