Vail's history is interesting. There was no ski resort or town here 60 years ago. The town's founder actually discovered the area's potential during World War II as a member of a skiing unit of soldiers and came back during the 1960's to build a resort. Vail is the closest to a European town that I've ever seen in the United States. The town is composed of chalets, town squares, clock towers, creeks, fancy restaurants and the like. It's so beautiful it almost looks fake.

One of the best ski resorts in Colorado. The skiing itself is fantastic and even if you don't want to ski there's plenty to do. Vail Village is full of shops and great places to eat and if you want to get out and do some hiking or dog sledding all of that is available as well.
