About the Resort

Vail is a once-in-a-lifetime ski resort.

Overflowing with an endless array of diverse restaurants and bars, cozy cafés and some of the most famous boutiques, from the first steps onto the heated cobblestone streets into Vail Village, the dream starts to become reality. Touring the village that is rich in European alpine architecture, each step uncovers a new gem. Whilst being cradled within the majestic mountainscape of Utah, with the snow covered trees surrounding the village, and the enthusiastic murmur of guests and locals alike at your back, the energy is infectious. You come to Vail to escape every day life, and reconnect with the people that matter - it starts with the village, but it culminates with exploring the mountains.

Vail Ski Resort offers an extensive variety of terrain, totaling 5,289 acres2,140 hectares, making it one of the largest ski resorts in the world. Made up of 195 runs, two terrain parks, and a magnitude of bowls to choose from, there's enough here to ski for a lifetime – or two. Spark a life long love affair with adventure by taking a newly budding beginner down a green slope. Challenge friends to a race down the mountain, and take in the breathtaking views while flying against the sprawling terrain and dipping into the striking glades. Or, grab your favourite people and take a scenic gondola ride to the top of the mountains, and have dinner with the astonishing views at your feet.

The simple fact is, no one is a guest at Vail. When you're here – you're home.
