A "New Dawn," Indeed...
The Town of Vail is committed to having our resort to be one of the best in the world by offering quality services and up-to-date structure. You can see this dedication through its spending of about $125 million to improve Vail Mountain and around $500 million in beautifying Vail Village and Lionshead. This was all completed recently during a project called Vail's New Dawn, all of which is part of the Town of Vail's Billion Dollar Renewal!
A few projects completed during this revitalization period include Lionshead skier's bridge, Gore Creek Place, the Arrabelle at Vail Square, and The Ritz-Carlton Residences.
World-Class Skiing Right Out Your Door
This is what the lucky owners and visitors getting experience every winter! Fresh powder, bright blue skies, and sunshine radiating the faces of the skiers and boarders as they head down the mountain. Once down the mountain, après ski awaits for relaxation and entertainment. Watch the rugged mountain tops turn to a pink glow as the sun sets.
Complete your fabulous day by dining in the many spectacular restaurants. And then as you stroll down the quaint village cobble road, trees are shine with lights and shops are illuminated waiting for the shoppers the next day. The evening sparkles with numerous stars because the sky is so clear. Does this sound appealing? You too can have such a wonderful experience!
Shop 'Til You Drop
As you meander through Vail Village, whether it is during the winter or summer, you will be walking on a dry footpath. As part of the renovation, the Town of Vail installed heated pavers throughout town creating a beautiful and safe feel. Outdoor decks of restaurants line the streets with the many contented diners. The Village is a great place to enjoy the many fine restaurants whether you want to dine on gourmet cuisine or simply just people-watch during après ski. Also, you may enjoy taking a leisurely stroll browsing our many specialty and boutique shops.
Grab a Bite Somewhere Special
Having a quick snack, a bit of lunch, or an après ski meal on-mountain has never tasted so good all while being good for you. Vail has recently launched a project called "appetite for life," which provides only hormone-free meats and poultry and organic dairy products in an effort to provide quality food to its patrons. There are a few restaurants connecting the main mountain to the back bowls such as the Two Elk Restaurant and Buffalo's Restaurant at which you can get beverages, soups, sandwiches, and baked goods. On top of Blue Sky Basin in the back bowls of Vail Belle's Camp is a great place to hang out and have lunch, or you can grill up your own food or even have a picnic. The Golden Peak Grill is located at the base of the Riva Bahn Lift and offers an eclectic menu with the Terrain Park and race courses just outside.
There are even more ways to enjoy the extensive on-mountain dining opportunities of Vail at the Mid-Vail and Eagle's Nest eateries. The Wildwood Smokehouse and Pavilion is a two-mile high restaurant that serves award-winning food with unbeatable views of Mount of the Holy Cross and Gore Range. What could be better? How about gourmet French-American cuisine with an extensive wine list and quality service at the exquisite Game Creek Restaurant!
A Dream Vacation for Kids, Too
Vail has become a great destination for families with kids of all ages. There are many playgrounds for younger children with the most famous being the Pirate Ship Playground at the base of the Vista Bahn. The Children's Snowsport School is a world-class ski school offering the highest level of professional instructors who can teach kids to perfect their technique and feel comfortable in any terrain.

Take in the Scenery

The scenery is breathtaking! The famous clock tower view with a direct shot of Gore Range is spectacular. No matter how long you live here, you never tire of the beauty. As you walk down Bridge Street, Vail Mountain greets you in the winter with sparkling snow, glistening from the sun's warm rays. In the summer, there is glorious green grass spanning to mountainside with colorful wildflowers painting a magnificent picture for any Village passerby. Children can play in the fountain at Seibert Circle or they can run down to Gore Creek where fly fishermen are wading in the water, kayaks are floating by, and children and dogs are splashing around. It truly is a magical sight.
