Colorado Mountain Resorts At Their Finest: A Guide To Vail Village
Your Vail experience doesn’t end on the mountain. It spills over into Vail Village, the nation’s best, most accessible base area for shopping, strolling, dining, barhopping, lodging and more.
Right off the mountain, just steps from the lifts, Vail Village offers guests all types of fun, day and night. Everything you could ever want in a vacation is right here:
From comfortable hotel rooms to spacious vacation rentals, lodging in Vail Village has it all.
Enjoy onsite spas and fitness centers, award-winning cuisine and the hottest après ski bars in town.
The Lodge at Vail, the original hotel in Vail, offers guests rustic elegance and friendly service at every turn.
Other luxury lodging of note in Vail includes AustriaHaus, Tivoli Lodge and The Four Seasons Resort.
You don’t have to sacrifice style and comfort for proximity to the mountain in Vail. You can wake up rested and relaxed and head right out onto the slopes.
An essential rite after any epic powder day, après ski begins around 3:00 p.m. and lasts well into the evening. Since everything in Vail Village is a stone’s throw from the slopes, you’ll have time to run up to your room and change into something a little more comfortable than ski pants and boots.
However, should you feel the need, even the high-end bars are forgiving of a little alpine gear (just be sure to check your ski boots at the door). For great après ski drinks, stop into the Tap Room, just around the corner from the Vista Bahn Lift.
Vacationing in the mountains does not mean giving up five-star cuisine the likes of which you would find in many metropolitan centers.
On the contrary, you can find some of the most delectable food imaginable in Vail Village.
Make reservations at Block 16, Cucina Rustica, or Flame for some truly stunning dining experiences.
The fun doesn’t stop once the sun goes down in Vail. If you’re just getting warmed up by the time après is over, be certain to take advantage of some superior nightlife fun in Vail Village.
Bōl is unlike anything else in the Village, let alone Vail. Part upscale bar, part swanky bowling alley, this is a great place to enjoy the finer things while still having a little lighthearted fun.
If you stopped into the Tap Room for après drinks, you can always settle in and spend the evening there swapping stories with friends and planning tomorrow’s new adventures. This place is one of the hottest spots in town after the sun goes down.
Don’t forget to pamper yourself while you’re staying in Vail.
If you’re looking for a place to unwind, Vail Village has several enticing options, including The Lodge at Vail’s RockResorts Spa, which features 11 treatment rooms and a top-of-the-line fitness center with yoga and Pilates classes.
Vail Village is at the heart of the Town of Vail, so when you choose to stay in this neighborhood, you’ll have access to all the luxurious adventures you care to experience.
