Overview

Vail is a luxury international destination that provides top class accommodations and services. A world-class ski destination in Winter, Summer and Fall in Vail are equally glorious with panoramic views and spectacular mountain golf courses.

Nestled in a valley surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, long ago carved by the crystal-clear rivers that run through it, Vail has been outdoor enthusiasts’ nirvana since its inception in 1966.

From world-class orchestral performances and internationally renowned culinary and wine festivals to horseback riding, fly-fishing, mountain biking and winter sports on North America’s second-largest single ski mountain, Vail and surrounding areas promise to delight a wide array of visitors.

What We Love

Vail's cobblestone pedestrian villages offer a tremendous variety of shopping choices - from casual sports wear and outdoor gear to iconic jewelry, fine arts, furs, home decor, and haute fashion.

Vail has dozens of hot spots for dozens of reasons. Sunny decks and cold beers after a day on the slopes, an intimate piano bar for relaxing or perhaps, a dance club where you can catch some great live music.

The Farmers Market held every Sunday on East Meadow Drive is a great way to check out some of the great food Vail has to offer as well as Colorado artisans and vendors.

What to Know

Early Spring and Late Fall in the Mountains can be snowy and muddy, so make sure that you consider wedding dates carefully.

As a ski resort, certain winter dates are more expensive than others, so make sure to consider the winter schedule of events when selecting your wedding date.
