Why You Should Visit Vail This Winter
With summer winding down, you may be itching for cooler, crisper temps and have winter vacation planning on your mind. Now is a great time to book, to ensure you secure the best dates and prime accommodations. With over 190 trails, 3 terrain parks, 1 super-pipe, 1 half pipe, and a myriad of other alpine activities, Vail, Colorado, home of the massive Vail Ski Resort is one of the most sought after winter vacation destinations every ski season! Here’s why:
Skiing at its Best:
Vail is a small village at the base of Vail Mountain, nestled within White River National Forest, and the resort town is favored as the fourth largest ski area in North America, because of the wide variety of skiing. Most notably, avid and intermediate to advanced skiers have found most of all the back bowls to be truly unique.
Annually ranked as one of the top resorts for families, there’s nothing on earth like Vail for a family ski vacation. It helps that getting around is very easy: take advantage of the free shuttle that runs through the resort or explore by foot – a rental car is not needed, as Vail is very much pedestrian-friendly. Family-friendly fun can be found at Adventure Ridge where you can enjoy activities such as ski biking, kids snowmobile, bungee trampoline, snow tubing, and snowshoeing.
Dining and Nightlife:
Looking for a dining adventure? The Game Creek Restaurant is a must-see. This European-styled chalet located at the top of a mountain requires you to take a snow-cat ride to reach your destination. Then you’ll dine on a 3, 4 or 5 course meal. Feast on Maui Onion and Endive Soup, lamb loin and a chocolate trio dessert.
For those looking for a bustling nightlife scene, Vail has no shortage of options. Enjoy live music, dancing and drinks in lounges and bars – all accessible by foot! Popular places include The Club, The George and the Sandbar Sports Grill.
For Après Ski after a day on the trails, refuel with some juicy burgers and refreshingly cold beers at Vendetta’s, The Red Lion and Garfinkel’s.
For those who love to shop, be sure to visit either Lionshead or Vail Village. Stroll thru one of dozens of boutiques for souvenirs, jewelry, clothes, ski gear, art and more.
Vail is easily accessible by flying directly into Eagle County Regional Airport for ultimate convenience, or fly into and drive or take a shuttle from Denver, Grand Junction or Colorado Springs.
