Vail

 

All About Vail

Set in the White River National Forest, Vail is one of the most renowned ski resorts in the world.  Sitting right above 8,000 feet in elevation, Vail’s town was built to compliment the ski resort.  At just over 50 years old, Vail is now the largest ski resort in Colorado.

Vail attracts plenty of visitors in the summer as well with great mountain biking and the vibe of a small mountain getaway.  Plenty of opportunities for great outdoor activity surround the area. Gore Creek runs through the center of town and is a common destination for fishermen from all over in the summer.  

During the “mud seasons” in spring and fall, Vail turns nearly into a ghost town.  Missing out on this time of year would be a mistake, as the aspens in the fall evolve into a blanket of yellow and the crisp mornings in the spring are perfect for hiking and fishing.  You may even catch one last snow in March or April, since Colorado’s weather can be so unpredictable.
