Vail Village

Après Ski and Powder Days are Signature Vail Village

Vail Village Colorado is a truly international ski resort, one of the most famous in the United States. Guests enjoy a Vail vacation from all around the world every winter; attracted by the famous Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin.

The Vail Village Experience

Vail Mountain offers 5,289 acres of terrain for all proficiency levels with runs from beginner to expert easily accessible on the front side of the mountain. Advanced skiers and riders will enjoy the thrill and jaw dropping views of the Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin which offer a taste of backcountry skiing while still in-bounds.

Vail’s famous Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin offer an unrivaled experience on powder days. With terrain stretching as far as the eye can see you can chart your own run to find powder at every turn. For the quickest access back to Blue Sky Basin take the Mountaintop Express Lift from mid-Vail follow Sleepytime Road past Sun Up Bowl to Tea Cup Bowl.

The resort itself is a 2.5 hour drive from Denver International and 35 minutes from Eagle County Regional Airport. The main village of Vail meanders from the covered bridge over Gore Creek through Vail plaza to Gondola One, Vail’s newest heated gondola. Gondola One provides quick access to Mid-Vail with a wide array of intermediate terrain, and Sun Up and Sun Down bowls through the surrounding lifts. With several dining options, including a fine dining experience at the 10th Mid-Vail offers a convenient staging point to spend the day on the mountain, accessing both Vail Village and Lionshead, and squeeze in every last turn.

Accommodation here is diverse. The resort is not known for having a lot of ski in ski out rental accommodation. As a result, Vail Village condos and hotels, especially at the higher end, offer ski valet services that can range from complete indulgence, where you walk or shuttle to the valet service, kit up and hop on the lift with no time wasted delivering your equipment to the valet, to doing your own drop off & collection. Depending on your budget and size of your group, there are different levels of accommodation and most winter visitors will find something suitable provided they book early. Generally, Vail has a reputation for being pricey, but it is possible to find a more affordable vacation rental further away from the main village.

There is a great bus and shuttle service that connects all the areas of Vail to the main village. The service runs till the early hours of the morning and starts in good time to get guests to the nearest access point in time for the first lift.

The central village area has a strong Austrian/Alpine character reminiscent of some of the famous Austrian resorts. Many of the Vail Village restaurants and coffee shops carry through this theme and you can enjoy some traditional Austrian style dishes and cakes; great comfort eating for those cold winter days. We encourage every visitor to Vail to sample some of the Alpenrose delights – the pastries are delicious. If you fancy something different, Vail is home to some of the finest culinary mountain indulgences. Matsuhisa offers a Japanese/Sushi palette with Peruvian influences, while Sweet Basil is a classic in Vail; renowned for delivering consistent and imaginative fine dining year after year. The village hosts a very wide range of cuisine to appeal to all ages and tastes.

Vail is always full of energy and vibrancy; the younger generation responds to this, perfecting their sport during the day and honing their party skills at night. Nightlife is focused mainly around the Vail Village bars starting with Happy Hour, where there is often live music. The younger set gathers here to be with old friends and to make some new ones. St Patrick’s Day is a particular evening of fun following a hard day of mountain sport dressed in “the green”.

Even for non-skiers, many delights are on offer. Vail Village shops include clothing stores, jewelry, art and furs; indulge in a spa day or keep trim at one of the many fitness facilities or snowshoeing. Bol is a unique bowling experience. Within the village there are coffee shops to relax in and the library is a fantastic spot to curl up with a book for the day.

Vail has something for everyone.

What our happy clients have to say:

Very clean and spacious property. Bedrooms were just right for us. My parents don’t ski and enjoyed sitting in front of the fire watching it snow and skiers go by. Will be back to this property.

We Will Be Back, Domkellar

We had a great time. Property is in an excellent spot, big space with washer, dryer, kitchen and a big living area. Very comfortable and management team excellent.

Excellent Spot, Jennifer H

Staying at Arrowhead was great and we enjoyed the condo. It was a short walk to the lift which made this accommodation great for a group that started and ended the ski day at various times.
