Resort from Above

Nestled at the base of Vail Mountain amid pristine forestland, Hotel Talisa, Vail stands along the banks of Gore Creek in Cascade Village. A premier destination for authentic yet opulent mountain hospitality, the resort provides complimentary shuttle service to both Lionshead Village and Vail Village throughout the year. Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) is 33 miles away, and Denver International Airport (DEN) is 122 miles away.

The enchanting Vail area showcases the Rocky Mountains’ breathtaking natural beauty and engaging activities in every season. Winter and spring yield an average of 300 inches of snow—much of it powder-perfect—in a wonderland that is easily accessed by the onsite Cascade Village Lift, Chair 20. The 3,450-foot Vail Mountain boasts a total of 5,289 skiable acres and 33 ski lifts, including two gondolas. Ice skating and snowmobiling are also popular.

During warm summers and cool falls, guests enjoy hiking, running, mountain biking, rock climbing, swimming, rafting, golf, and tennis. This one-of-a-kind respite of beauty and serenity is home to trout in Gore Creek’s Gold Medal waters and moose grazing on mountain grasses. Other local attractions include the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, Vail Nature Center, and the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum and Hall of Fame.

Just five minutes away, Vail Village is an inviting place for shopping, dining, entertainment, and touring art galleries. Annual events include The Taste of Vail, the World Alpine Ski Championships, the GoPro Games, a renowned Fourth of July celebration, and music and dance festivals in the summer.

The region has a long history as a hunting ground and summer residence of the Ute Native Americans, who called these majestic peaks “the Shining Mountains.” Later, settlers mined and ranched in the Vail area. During World War II, it was home to the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division, which trained skiers and mountaineers for combat in the Italian Alps. After the war, veteran Peter Seibert returned to establish Vail in the 1960s and modeled it after the charming Alpine town of Zermatt, Switzerland.
