Vail is separated into five villages with a free village bus services making it easy getting around. For first timers to Vail, we recommend Vail Village, the original village, this is the hub with plenty of shops, dining and après ski entertainment. Some properties here are ski-in/ski-out, others are a short walk from the lifts. Lionshead is not as busy with still plenty of après ski options so ideal for couples and families. Some properties here are ski-in/ski-out, others are a short walk from the lifts. Golden Peak offers accommodation right by the lifts, it’s quieter location makes it ideal for families and couples. There are still a good variety of restaurants in the area. East Vail and West Vail are further away from the lifts, and are a good option for families and groups looking for budget-friendly accommodation, we recommend picking a property close to a bus stop in these areas. Accommodation coming to the website soon – stay tuned. Please call the office for a quote.
