Vail Valley is made up of a few mountain towns, with Vail being the most popular. There is also Edwards, Avon, and Beaver Creek. Vail Ski Resort and Beaver Creek are the two ski resorts that are situated in the valley, both with slopes from beginner to advanced so the whole family can have fun.
Vail is situated on the east end of the valley, and Beaver Creek sits just 20 minutes west on I-70. Edwards is the furthest west town in the valley.
Vail sits at just over 8,000 feet in elevation, located west of the Continental Divide. The White River National Forest that surrounds this sought-after ski town is full of adventure, bringing thousands upon thousands of visitors to the area each year. Vail is mostly known for it’s ski slopes and perfect winters, but this town has a lot to offer year-round.
A gateway to the lovely Beaver Creek ski resort as well as plenty of outdoor activities in the summer, Avon is an overlooked mountain town in the high country. Rafting, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking are all top priority for those in the area during the warmer months, and Beaver Creek is a hidden gem in itself when blankets of snow cover the valley.
Another underrated mountain getaway is Edwards, Colorado. Just 4 miles west of Beaver Creek and less than 15 miles west of Vail, this town is perfect for a truly quiet and charming vacation.
Eagle County, just west of Summit County and the Continental Divide, is a hotspot year round for those who want to enjoy the mountains and experience everything a quaint mountain town has to offer. With skiing and snowboarding in the winter, and mountain biking, fishing, and hiking in the summer, the valley is a definite go-to for anyone wanting to properly enjoy the Colorado Rockies.
