Vail attracts more and more luxury shops and shoppers each year, from high-end items such as jewelry, perfumes and furs to the new mountain styles that are as fashionable as they are comfortable and warm to wear. Vail classics such as Gorsuch, and newer arrivals like Arriesgado and Avalon, have both high and hot fashions, and outdoor specialty shops like Oakley, Patagonia and The North Face keep you geared up for any winter adventure.

Local Treasures

Enjoy all that Vail shopping has to offer. Take time to explore the bountiful boutiques and shops in downtown Vail. Find something for the whole family at Gorsuch, a luxury retailer and Vail tradition for more than 50 years. If you’re looking for jewelry for that special someone (including mom), The Golden Bear is the place to go. Their signature design is known as “The Symbol” of Vail Valley and has been a mainstay since the store first opened in 1975. Stop by one of our Vail Sports retail locations to stock up on your favorite outdoor gear for both winter and summer.

Family Favorites

Cap off a day on the mountain together by uncovering all of the shops filled with sweets, treasures and trinkets for the whole family. Stop into Fuzziwigs, a quaint, colorful store where you can get lost in a world of delicious treats including candy from your typical treats to your more obscure brands and flavors. Adults will be feeling nostalgic to find candy from the past such as Clark Bar’s, Zagnuts, and Red Hots!

Stroll down by Gore Creek beyond the international bridge to discover The Toy Store where your little ones will be sure to find toys, games and treats that are certain to delight. Be sure not to miss out on the Colorado favorite, the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, filled with chocolate and candy treats that will greet your noses at the door!
Summer Specialties

Come summertime, blue skies and warmer temperatures breathe new life into Vail’s already vibrant shopping scene, as do the many festivals throughout the summer.

Vail’s Farmers’ Market and Art Show is a special treat during the warmer months, with more than 135 vendors every Sunday from June through October. Fill your bags with locally grown produce (Palisade’s peaches and Olathe’s sweet corn are musts), handcrafted artwork and countless food options. Come with an appetite and be ready to enjoy jazzy tunes, brought to you by Vail Jazz, while you stroll.

After you hit the Farmers’ Market, take time to explore the bountiful boutiques and shops in downtown Vail. The Vail Arts Festival is another beloved shopping experience at Vail. More than 80 artists come from 22 states to show off their best artwork, from ceramics and jewelry to photography and metal works. Located at the base of the mountain in Lionshead Village, you’ll be surrounded by the beauty of the mountains while perusing even more beautiful artwork handcrafted by local, regional and national artisans.
