It's no secret that wintertime in Vail is an exceptional vacation destination choice. Add the charm of the holiday season, and a ski vacation to Vail becomes a truly memorable occasion. It’s a chance for friends and family to step away from the daily grind, reconnect and celebrate all that we have to be grateful for. It’s time to hit the slopes and navigate the resort's terrain, revisiting old favorite runs or exploring new front-side trails and back bowls.
Off-mountain, loved ones create memories as they partake of all that this alpine community has to offer during the holidays, including fine dining, shopping, musical performances and more.
The town itself becomes part of the fun, with glittering lights, falling snow, and festive décor complementing Vail's European architecture to create an enchanting holiday backdrop.
