"Vail mountain is spectacular and so are Vail home prices!"

The town of Eagle-Vail is most commonly known as simply "Vail", but technically Vail is the ski resort. The town sits in the Eagle River Valley in Eagle County along I-70 in central Colorado.

There is skiing, golf, fine dining, hiking, biking trails, lots of shops and bars etc...There is a lot to do in Vail and it really is beautiful and it really is expensive. I personally love to ski the back basins of Vail, it is the biggest most intricate place to explore and ski. But compared to, for example, Steamboat Springs resort Vail is really a fancy ski resort town along the interstate. There is a little too much hype yet as mentioned the place is a blast for a couple days.

The cost of living in Vail pushes out most except those you buy property as a second investment home/vacation getaway. There are some full time residents but they are not the majority. The average median household income is reported to be about $90,000. A nice but not too elaborate 5 bedroom home in EagleVail goes for about 1 million, there are some condo/duplex homes that are smaller and still really nice for about $600,000. Some of the more elaborate properties go for much much more.

There is of course skiing but there is a lot of local art events and swimming, tennis etc... There are homes across the interstate from the resort up into the hills towards White River National Forest and the Flattops wilderness area. Once you get back into these back county roads and forest roads there are some old cabins and historical cabins and amazing more traditional historic Colorado properties.
