Snow, ski and sunshine: when you visit Vail, you’re entering one of the highest ranked (and most popular) ski resorts in the US. An awesomely compact Tyrolean village, this place is packed with travellers from around the world, so you can expect a truly diverse and unique experience. If the size of the mountain alone isn’t enough to get you there, the amenities of the resort will.
Vail's interesting history makes it all the more compelling. Had it not been for the severe droughts in the 1850s and 1860s, the resort may have never existed in the first place. The dryness in the land caused vast forest fires, clearing some of the land. For the next hundred years, the land refurbished itself naturally, but still left a clearing where the now-famed resort lies. In 1962, Vail’s gates opened, and immediately became a smash hit among skiers and snow boarders.
Since it’s known as a four-season resort any time of year is good to visit. While most people tend to flock to the slopes in the winter (December to February), the summer is perfect for budget travellers to find cheap flights to Vail and enjoy the beautiful weather in the outdoors. The landscape is jaw-dropping, but the inside facilities are as well. Spas, stores, and restaurants are all at your fingertips, to whether you’re inside, outside, there in the winter, or there in the summer, you’ll love every minute of your travel to Vail.
