Year-round adventures in Vail

With its dominant snow-coated mountain, glassy waterways and sweeping valleys quilted with forests, Vail is nothing short of spectacular. Located within the unspoiled grandeur of Colorado's White River National Forest, the town provides the perfect base for a huge number of outdoor adventures. From world-class skiing and snowboarding at the legendary Vail Ski Resort in winter, to hiking, biking and zip-lining in summer, you can find it all here. Whatever appeals, Vail vacation rentals put you in the heart of it all.

Conquer the slopes at Vail Mountain

More than 11,000-feet tall and dominating the landscape, Vail Mountain is where the action is. One of the largest ski resorts in the world, it boasts 5,289 acres of skiable terrain during the winter months. With almost 200 runs and 3 terrain parks, Vail Mountain offers something for all and, with its lifts, gondolas and public transport links, getting around isn't a problem. When the snow melts away, the region's rolling green landscape is revealed, setting the scene for hiking, biking, camping, fishing, zip-lining and scenic games of golf.

No shortage of attractions in happening Vail

No matter where your Vail vacation rental is located, there's a great deal to do when you're not on the slopes. An attraction in its own right, Vail is known for its quaint alpine architecture, small-town vibe and, unusually, a pedestrian thoroughfare that boasts underfloor heating. Here, you'll find no shortage of things to do, from dining at world-class restaurants and browsing the fashionable boutiques, to unwinding at hip nighttime haunts and getting pampered at a spa. When you're recharged and are ready to don your skis again, the village's Gondola One will whisk you back up to the slopes in style.

Thick snow during ski season in Vail

Coming for the ski season? You'll want to book your Vail vacation rental between December and March, when the resort's slopes are blanketed in thick snow. During this time, average temperatures range between the mid-20s and low 30s, making it much cooler than the summer season. If you prefer things to be a little warmer, June through September is the best time to visit. Accommodation rates tend to be more affordable, while the average highs hover in the 70s.

Explore the great outdoors in awe-inspiring Vail

Vail sits within the White River National Forest, a vast wilderness spanning more than 2 million acres, studded with breathtaking mountains and draped in thick woodland. Its northern section is spliced through by the grand White River, which gives the forest its name. For nature lovers, to call it a paradise is an understatement. The sprawling, unspoiled landscape is home to all manner of fascinating creatures, including deer, elk, mountain lions, bobcats, lynx and bears.
