Vail Celebrates 50 Years

Having grown up in Colorado, Vail has always been such premier destination.  People from all over the world visit Vail while locals and front rangers alike agree that skiing is unmatched.  I would bet that we can all remember our first time dropping into the back bowls with nothing but open powder fields in front of us!   It is so much more than a ski area…it is VAIL!  It is hard to believe that the town is only 50 years old.  I can’t even imagine what the Vail Valley looked like before the legendary back bowls, before Vail Village, Lionshead, Beaver Creek, etc.
