As beautiful an American ski resort as any, Vail’s blue skies, pine clad hills and impressive peaks make a spectacular backdrop to around 1500 acres of downhill runs and another 3500 acres of more varied ski terrain. Vail is also a glamorous destination, with the best places to stay in Vail offering luxurious spas and exceptional restaurants as well as chic rooms.
Our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Vail also have truly glorious views.
Vail’s architecture is unique as far as U.S. ski resorts are concerned - it’s modelled on a European village - and the size of the resort corresponds with the size of its ski terrain - it’s enormous. The runs and lifts can still be busy though, but the exquisitely beautiful back bowls with their wooded slopes, are a wonderful place for confident intermediate skiers to let loose.
In Summer Vail is still an extremely popular spot for those who appreciate the great outdoors. First there’s the mountain biking, then the horse riding, hiking, rafting, fishing and golf. A number of the lifts remain open during summer so that you can catch the gondola up with your bike and speed down.
As well as great, and expansive skiing and snowboarding, Vail is known for its restaurants and boutiques.
As a year round resort Vail can busy whatever the season. So if you want to ensure a room in one of the best places to stay in Vail, get organised and plan well ahead.
