When Vail Mountain opened in December 1962 with one gondola, two chair lifts, eight ski instructors and a $5 lift ticket, the U.S. Forest Service stipulated there be at least one lodge with a minimum of 30 sleeping rooms. The Lodge at Vail soon cemented its place as the cornerstone property of what would become Vail Village.
Over the summer and fall of 2014, all 56 guest rooms were updated, including interior finishes, modern mountain chic furniture, lighting, and air conditioning.

RockResorts Signature Dining Guide
With the most sun, the best snow, highest lift-served terrain and biggest resorts (with the best amenities), Colorado tops the nation for ski vacations. Of course, every resort has its own personality, so how do you plan a trip that suits you and your travel companions, be they friends or family? Follow our comprehensive guide to ski and stay vacations in Colorado and we're sure you'll find everything you are looking for in a winter escape.
Best ForFamily and friends that want to explore the expansive, snow-blanketed terrain by day and cozy up with fine food, plush accommodations and thrilling entertainment by night.
Where to StayThere are a number of luxury accommodations in the heart of Vail, Colorado, but the two that bring Old World charm and elegance together seamlessly are The Arrabelle at Vail Square and The Lodge at Vail. With sunny ski days and dazzlingly lit winter nights, Vail Village and Vail Square are both at the center of everything that defines Vail as one of the premiere ski towns in the U.S. Both hotels offer guest rooms and private condos, so you can accommodate small or large groups of people. Or, for a truly memorable ski-in/ski-out experience, try one of the Chalets offered at The Lodge at Vail.
What to Do Besides the skiing and snowboarding, there is a wealth of activities to experience in Vail. If you want a break from riding, take on the tubing hill at Adventure Ridge. If you would rather spend your day in town, pamper yourself with a visit to one of the two lavish RockResorts Spas® and spoil yourself with any number of locally inspired treatments. Of course, when the sun goes down, you have to meet up with friends for some après ski activities! Grab some cocktails at Tavern on the Square and stick around for a gourmet dinner after you've warmed up.
Best ForFamilies or couples that want the best that a ski town has to offer, from slopes to dining.
Where to StayWhen it comes to lodging at Beaver Creek, three words come to mind: luxury, elegance and serenity. Where you stay in Beaver Creek is your retreat, and it must offer all of the upscale amenities you're accustomed to while still feeling quaint and intimate. If rustic elegance is what you're looking for, then look no further than The Osprey at Beaver Creek or The Pines Lodge. The Osprey at Beaver Creek is literally steps away from world-class skiing, since it is the closest hotel to a chairlift in North America. The Pines Lodge offers ski-in/ski-out access in a serene location that's just steps away from Beaver Creek Village.
What to Do When you visit Beaver Creek, you're not only upgrading your lodging, you're upgrading your entire ski vacation. With gourmet cuisine around every corner and some of the most challenging terrain in the U.S., your vacation is sure to be unforgettable. Everything you need (or want) is offered on the mountain, including several slope-side gourmet restaurants. Ski, sip and dine in style! Be sure to take a stroll through Beaver Creek Village during your stay. Day or night, the unique boutique shops, quaint restaurants and ice skating is sure to delight the senses, but after the sun goes down and the lights come up, it's like stepping into a fairy tale.
Best ForFamilies looking for excitement at every turn. You never slow down and you want a ski town that doesn't either.
Where to StayThe fun never stops in Breckenridge, but you and your family deserve to have a space that is a quiet, luxurious escape from the hustle and bustle of your days on the mountain. One Ski Hill Place is just such a sanctuary. Far and away the most luxurious accommodations in Breckenridge, you'll find everything you need under one roof, plus ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes. With private, spacious condos ranging from studio to four bedrooms, One Ski Hill Place is perfect for a romantic getaway, or a family retreat. With gourmet kitchens, flat screen TV's, balconies and a gas fireplace, you will feel right at home.
What to DoIf skiing and riding isn't enough of a thrill, take a ride on the Gold Runner Alpine Coaster. Located at the base of Peak 8 (near One Ski Hill Place), this is a roller coaster unlike anything you've ever experienced. The ride takes you through the mountain's naturally exciting terrain, and the best part is that you can control the speed! If you're looking for a day of indulgence, make an appointment at the Rejuvenation Center located in One Ski Hill Place. Any worries you have will simply melt away.
Colorado ski vacations are some of the best around, and with this guide to some of the most luxurious lodging and unforgettable experiences in the Rocky Mountains, you're sure to have a vacation that not only leaves you feeling relaxed and revived, but helps you make memories to last a lifetime.
When you're surrounded by the majesty of the Rockies, anything is possible. So much that it can be tough to decide where to start. What should go on your Vail Valley bucket list? We have a few ideas.
We asked world champion skier Lindsey Vonn and other high-profile Vail & Beaver Creek locals share their favorite activities on the mountains and in the valley. Here are 15 to add to your "must-do" list.
We asked a handful of ski instructors and patrollers to give us the inside scoop: What's the best way to ski Vail or Beaver Creek, find the powder stashes, and avoid lines? Here's what they had to say:
If you love the 24-hour service and amenities of a luxury hotel but need more space and privacy, RockResorts has the perfect solution. Reserve a vacation rental at one of our ski properties, and you'll enjoy the best of both worlds.
Luxury rental options come in all sizes, including condominiums, townhomes, chalets, and large private residences. And, the benefits can't be beat:
FlexibilityAsk yourself: Do you value daily cleaning and turndown services, in-room dining, spas and restaurants within easy reach? Do you prefer preparing your own meals in a true home away from home? The nice thing about RockResort lodging is that you don't have to compromise. You can be left alone if you prefer or attended to like royalty.
The freedom to cook...or not Have the concierge stock your pantry before your arrival so you can prepare all your favorite meals in the comfort of your condo. Don't like to cook? Call room service, dine in one of the resort's fine restaurants, or ask the staff to arrange for a private chef to cook for you and your group.
Room for everyoneEliminate the need for adjoining blocks of hotel rooms. The wide variety of rental properties available through RockResorts means you can find the perfect space with the exact number of beds you need. Your guests can enjoy their own private bathroom as well.
Gathering space for friends and familyIn addition to well-appointed bedrooms, your luxury vacation rental will include central living space to relax, watch television, or gather around the fireplace with your loved ones. All RockResort properties are furnished with high-end fixtures and technology that you'd be proud to feature in your own home.
The utmost privacy and seclusionNothing beats having a space to truly call your own during the length of your vacation. Enjoy a private romantic getaway, spend uninterrupted time with your family and friends, or protect your privacy without giving up an ounce of comfort.
Concierge service is still as easy as picking up the phoneBook a RockResort vacation rental, and you'll have access to all the same amenities as our luxury hotel guests, including concierge, 24-hour front desk service, in-room dining, and so much more. Let us help plan your itinerary, deliver rental skis to your room, make dinner reservations, book excursions, tours, and more.
Ski storageEnjoy the convenience of storing your skis and snowboard gear on-site, through our ski valet or in your rental property's gear closet.
Easy access to laundry (or laundry service)For longer vacations or trips with children, having access to laundry is a must. You can DIY by reserving a residence with a washer/dryer, or call the front desk and let us take care of the dirty work.
Ideal for families and groupsSharing a vacation rental lets you strike a compromise between togetherness and privacy. Enjoy family meals together in the fully stocked kitchen, play games or watch movies in the large living room, and you'll still have enough space for everyone to come and go as they please.
Stress-free morningsParents often say they appreciate not having to get the kids dressed to go down to breakfast in a hotel restaurant. In your own condo, pajamas are perfectly acceptable at the table.
The ability to entertainIf you prefer to do the hosting yourself, choose a vacation rental with plenty of room to cook, dine and mingle. Arrange for a private chef to come to your condo and cook for your family or party. Or, the resort restaurants are happy to cater events large and small. Ask about these options at your chosen RockResort.
A true winter retreatThink of your luxury rental as your home away from home (only better)! With sweeping views of snow-capped peaks, easy access to the slopes (often just steps away), fine dining, shopping, and endless winter adventure, you may never want to leave.

You came to conquer a mountain, to stay in the lap of luxury and to experience everything that a Colorado ski resort has to offer. While skiing and snowboarding are typically at the top of most people's "to do" lists when they visit a Colorado ski town, there is so much more to experience than epic powder days.
Best experienced when the sun goes down and the lights go up, skating (in the center of many of the mountain villages) is a dazzling experience.
Take a break from tearing down the mountain on your feet and kick back on a snow tube. Many of the Colorado ski resorts have a tubing hill, so you and the whole family can get in some laughs and make a few memories.
With splendid mountain views and unique village boutiques, shopping in a mountain resort is completely different than any other place on earth. Discover one-of-a-kind items that you simply won't find anywhere else.

Travel back in time when you hop aboard a horse-drawn sleigh. With blankets and hot cocoa to keep you warm, you'll venture across the snowy landscape to a remote ranch for a gourmet dinner.

For experienced, adventurous skiers who want to venture beyond the lifts, Cat vehicles are the ticket to pristine backwoods trails and untouched powder.
Colorado ski resorts offer an abundance of things to do during the day or at night. You can come to ski and enjoy so much more both on and off the mountain.
At the RockResorts®, we have one saying that we hold in the highest esteem: "The essence of where you're going should be where you're staying." Our luxury ski hotels combine the beauty and splendor of the mountains with a simple elegance that you will only find in our accommodations. When it comes to legendary resorts, we know what it takes to make your experience one that you'll remember for a lifetime.
Ski in/Ski out access to ski slopesNothing slows down a ski vacation more than sitting (or standing) on shuttles to and from the base of the mountain. Our RockResort luxury hotels give you prime location so that you spend less time in lines and on shuttles and more time enjoying the mountain you came to conquer. In fact, The Osprey at Beaver Creek is located closer to a chairlift than any other hotel in North America, so you can waste no time exploring the trails.
Amenities tailored specifically to passionate skiersSkiing isn't just a pastime; it's a way of life and to that end, we've taken steps to ensure that your stay at one of our luxury ski hotels fits that lifestyle to the letter. From services such as ski valets and ski storage onsite to 24/7 concierge services, our staff are dedicated to ensuring that you want for nothing while enjoying your ski vacation.
Gourmet après ski and dining options in the hotel Skiing terrain on any one of the three ski resorts where we have properties (which are all ranked in the top 10 for North America), you're sure to work up an appetite. But we know that basic bar food or simple dinner options have no place in a luxury ski experience. Decadent and sumptuous meal options are just as important as every other aspect of your stay so we hire top chefs and create gourmet meals at our onsite restaurants, some of which have won international awards for their cuisine.
Relaxation around every cornerWe understand that vacations are about escaping the everyday challenges of life and finding your center. Whether that means strapping on skis every morning and soaking in the sun while bathing in powder or spending an entire day pampering yourself in one of our lavish RockResort Spas®, we're here to ensure that you leave our luxury ski hotels feeling refreshed and relaxed. Our properties feature top-of-the-line hot tubs, state-of-the-art fitness centers and, as we mentioned before, our signature spas that have packages designed specifically for the hotel and its guests.
In essence, a perfect stay comes down to your happiness. Our goal is for you to be 100% in the moment when you visit our hotels, so we sweat the small stuff for you. You should never miss an opportunity or moment because you had to worry about details. You should leave a RockResorts hotel feeling renewed, relaxed and planning your next getaway.
No luxury vacation is complete without a feast for the senses and for the stomach. At RockResorts®, we pride ourselves on offering our guests the finest gourmet cuisine inspired by local ingredients and sourced sustainably.
We're of the opinion that your meals should complement your surroundings, so when you visit one of our casually elegant hotels in one of Colorado's ski resorts, you'll find hearty meals to sate a skier's appetite and delight their taste buds at the same time.
When you take a beach vacation in the Caribbean, you'll find a variety of light foods to keep with the warm, airy feel of the resort. Read on to find out more about our signature restaurants.
