Since its incorporation in 1966, Vail has earned the distinction as one of the leading mountain resort communities in North America. With more open space than any other community of its kind, free transit and other environmentally-sensitive services, plus an abundance of recreational, cultural and educational opportunities, Vail has become not only a great place to visit, but an even better place to live. On the heels of its success as a resort, Vail has evolved into an appealing recreation-friendly alpine community now comprised of nearly 5,000 full-time residents and an estimated 5,000 part-time residents. Together, Vail is considered to be a leader in its resort-community qualities and best practices.
