Vail, Colorado, is a home-rule municipality located in Eagle County. When the municipality was built, its purpose was to serve as the base village to the Vail Ski Resort. The resort is on the largest ski mountain in the state and opened to the public for skiing in 1962. Four years later, Vail was incorporated as a municipality with just a few residents and lodging for those visiting the area to ski. More from this guide...
