When people think skiing in Colorado, Vail is often the first town that comes to mind.
Established less than 50 years ago, saying the small town has grown rapidly in popularity is quite an understatement.
World-class skiing and a high celebrity quotient have put it on the map for many travelers. Located in the heart of the Vail Valley, in the Colorado Rockies, it's a town created by and for skiing.
Vail lies about 25 miles from Camp Hale, which spawned the famous 10th Mountain Division of mountain-trained soldiers during World War II. The Colorado Ski Museum in town honors the memory of those soldiers, who played a pivotal role in the war.
Luxurious condos, first-class ski resorts and cozy lodges surround a village sporting dozens of restaurants that indulge visitors.
The town is home to a number of big annual events, including a food and wine festival, the World Alpine Ski Championships, a huge July 4th extravaganza, nationally-renowned summer music and dance festivals and a locally loved rubber ducky race.
Former president Gerald R. Ford made his home here much of the time. His philanthropy spawned the Ford Amphitheatre performing arts center and the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, a must-see. Also check out the Vail Nature Center for an all-natural attraction.
Wild life once again abounds in the Vail Valley. In the 1800s, British adventurer Lord Gore ventured into the valley with mountain man Jim Bridger, hunting heavily and significantly reducing local animal populations. Today, the furry residents are back. Keep an eye out for deer and elk.
At Vail Pass, visitors can find a handful of scenic and easily accessed lakes in the Holy Cross Wilderness Area. The hike up Mount of the Holy Cross is no easy task, but one of the most popular in the area.
As big as skiing is in winter, golf replaces it handily in summer.
Be sure to check out the many local courses that fit almost any handicap.
