Dining & Nightlife

It's been said that if all you're doing is skiing, then you're really only observing half the alpine tradition. After all, second only to the invention of skiing in defining the ski town has been the invention of après skiing! And the tradition has not been forgotten about in Vail. On any given night guests can enjoy food from around the globe along with world-class entertainment and nightlife just steps from their door.
