Founded as a ski resort in 1962, Vail was incorporated as a town in 1966. Home to more than 5,000 permanent residents, plus another 5,000 part-time residents, Vail shares and values its mountain lifestyle and small-town feel. From hiking to biking and skiing in the winter, there's always something to do outside. Diverse shopping and world-class restaurants make Vail a top-tier destination town.
