Top Reasons to Go to Vail Valley

High-altitude golf: The thin air at this elevation lets your Titleist fly much farther—enjoy those hero swings at more than a dozen venues.

Romantic meals: A number of intimate restaurants are hidden away among the peaks, reachable by ski, on horseback, and even by horse-drawn sleigh.

Rugged scenery: The Gore Range presents some of the most sharp-spined backcountry in the state, with ice-cold tarns, sheer cliffs, and shaggy white mountain goats.

The slopes: Vail is as real and challenging a ski mountain as you'll find anywhere in the western United States, with the steeps and back bowls to prove it.

Summer festivals: Check out some of Vail's many cultural activities—summer is full of music, culinary, and dance festivals.
