When you say "Vail," skiers hear "Valhalla." There's just no other place like it, which is why it consistently ranks as the finest ski resort in North America, if not the world. The heart of Vail centers around the Tyrolean-inspired Vail Village and the more contemporary Lionshead, both of which are nestled in the Gore Range with peaks soaring to heights of over 13,000 feet! With its unique blend of American and European cultures, Vail is cosmopolitan yet relaxed. In certain places, it resembles a quaint Bavarian hamlet, with homey inns and lodges neighboring cozy A-frame chalets and clock towers. Picturesque pedestrian streets house colorful shops and boutiques, a potpourri of international restaurants and cafés, a high-energy nightlife, and gorgeous vistas.

Then there is that fabulous mountain! A skiing and snowboarding mecca in the winter and a mountain biking and hiking haven in summer, Vail Mountain is a vacation dream for everyone, all the time. And there's more! The "sister resort" of Beaver Creek provides a whole other adventure. Ski magazine declares its slopes a triumph that "strike gold with?the best tree skiing and groomed skiing anywhere." The village is an oasis of glamour and charm, with cobblestone roads leading to incomparable dining, shopping, and full-service spas. Heated escalators whisk you up the mountain and hot cocoa with cookies welcome you back. The Robb Report recently hailed Beaver Creek Village as "a place to be pampered…where walking through the village…is not only entertainment, it's stress relief therapy!"
