Regularly voted as the number one ski resort in North America, Vail is a world famous ski destination. Its huge expanse of terrain and lively après ski combine to make Vail a superb holiday destination.


Vail Village and Lionshead are interlinked by a regular free shuttle service, which runs until the early hours of the morning and both villages have their fair share of shops, bars, restaurants. At the top of the Lionshead Gondola, the Adventure Ridge development offers a unique night out, with everything from bars and restaurants, to children’s snowmobiling, tubing, ice skating, snow biking and even Laser Tag.
The town and ski area has completed a $1billion renaissance. This has included the opening of a number of 5 star properties, a major redevelopment in the village with an ice rink, cinema and bowling alley plus the opening of the 10th. – a full service on-mountain restaurant. This is located at the top of the new Gondola running form the Village and just steps away from the Lodge at Vail. All of this modernisation and renovation strengthens Vail’s position as one of North America’s premier ski resorts.

Facilities for children

The children’s ski & snowboard school has centres in Lionshead and Golden Peak and offers excellent programmes for children from 3-14 years. Kids that are too young to ski can go to the Small World Play School™, which offers a variety of activities for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years.
