Why Stay at the Base in Vail and Beaver Creek?

Tucked among the stunning scenery of the Vail Valley, you'll find a whole new vibe at the base of the mountains. It's not just your typical ski area anymore – it's a buzzing center of fun and relaxation. Surrounded by majestic peaks and that classic mountain charm, visitors are in for a modern mountain experience that's beyond compare.

Dynamic Hub of Activity

No longer confined to serving merely as logistical centers, the base areas of the Vail Valley have blossomed into vibrant hubs of entertainment and excitement. Beyond the traditional ticket offices and chairlifts, these areas now offer a myriad of amenities designed to elevate every visitor's experience. Imagine gliding gracefully across an ice skating rink, cozying up by a crackling fire pit, savoring gourmet delights at a fine dining establishment, or tapping your feet to the rhythm of live concerts under the stars. Moreover, modern conveniences like escalators ensure that getting to the lifts is effortless, allowing you to focus on the thrill of the mountain ahead.

Year-Round Appeal

The allure of the Vail Valley base areas extends far beyond the winter months. As the snow melts and the landscape transforms, these locales seamlessly transition into vibrant summer playgrounds. Here, you can embark on scenic chairlift rides offering panoramic views of the surrounding peaks, test your skills at mountain bike parks, or simply relax and enjoy the sunshine with a game of cornhole. The base areas pulse with energy year-round, offering a diverse array of activities to suit every taste and interest.

Charming Villages Await

Venture beyond the base areas, and you'll discover a tapestry of charming "villages" scattered throughout the Vail Valley. Each village exudes its own unique charm, from the picturesque alpine-inspired Vail Village to the laid-back ambiance of Lionshead Village. Further down the valley, the Beaver Creek Village stands as a bustling hub of activity, inviting visitors to explore its shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. These villages serve as gateways to a wealth of mountain adventures, ensuring that there's always something new to discover just around the corner.
