For over fifty years, the name “Vail” has been synonymous with the American alpine experience. Situated high up in the Gore Valley and surrounded by the White River National Forest, our community is ideally located in proximity to all that the Rocky Mountains have to offer. The founders of Vail decided to model the town after a European style alpine village. Today hand painted floral exteriors on several lodges creates a charming atmosphere for families and couples. Whether you are here for the ski season or the summer, Vail is the most spectacular valley in Colorado. This web site will help you with any questions about activities, planning your vacation, relocating, or any other general information. We hope that you have a great experience!!
