Vail Colorado Ski Resort is the largest alpine ski resort in the United States. Today, you are about to learn more about the city that feeds visitors with this gorgeous, well-groomed white powder. The Vail City, at its base, is a place that captures the heart of every visitor as he or she puts it, and you'll find out why.
Lionshead and Vail Village:
The city has two main communities: Lionshead and Vail Village. This is where most of the base activities take place every day. At Eagle Bahn Gondola, Born Free Express, Cascade Lift, Vista Bahn Express and Riva Bahn Express, it all starts here. Therefore, it is not surprising that the vast majority of businesses in the city are located in the area.
In this part of the base area, business consists of hotels, apartment buildings, house rentals, restaurants, bars, ATMs, ski shops, Vail Valley Medical Center and shopping center. Since long queues at lift retreat points are widespread, you naturally want to find a place to stay in either of these two communities. Because it is quite a small town, every major place is within walking distance. Perhaps this is one of the most attractive things that adds to the resort's pulling power. It's like the whole place is one big yard.
Every winter, the influx of visitors converts here, most of whom are entertaining and in business. It is therefore understandable that business establishments, mainly hotels and group houses, are modern. Therefore, you will find luxurious amenities such as state-of-the-art spa and fitness facilities, on-site gourmet restaurants, on-site ATMs, fully equipped business centers with free internet access and heated indoor and outdoor pools with fantastic mountain views.
When we said "visitor influx" some time ago, we failed to add "from around the world." As the resort becomes a diverse cultural must during the season, various restaurants are tailored to diverse, discriminatory tastes. As such, Vails has become a salad bowl with excellent culinary ingredients. Some restaurants have specialties, while others, especially the larger ones, have different sections serving American, Eastern, European and Mediterranean cuisine.
Vail is not all about skiing. Various cultural activities are highlighted throughout the city calendar throughout the year. Here are some of the cultural points as well as activities that reveal another face of the place. Named in honor of Wail's most distinguished frequent guest, US President. Gerald Ford, the Gerald Ford Amphitheater, has been the venue for Elton John and Billy Joel concerts. A few steps to the left of the amphitheater is a small building that houses a comprehensive collection of skiing information and its rich and fascinating history – the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum and the Hall of Fame.
On Thursday evenings, all summer, Beaver Creek, located just a 13-minute drive away, hosts the Vail Beaver Creek Rodeo, where visitors can enjoy an authentic Western BBQ while enjoying the race.
Other cultural activities are Bravo! Music Festival, Farmer's Market, Tuesday Night Concerts and Vail Dance Festival. Since the resort began its summer activities, the number of visitors during the warmer months has steadily increased. So now the place is slowly becoming a resort all year round; one whose pulling power no longer depends solely on snow.
