The Spirit of Vail (VIDEO)

Sep. 25, 2012

Young or old, skier or snowboarder, from near or far, those who love the mountains share something in common… a feeling that is difficult to put into words. While looking at footage from the past 50 years at Vail, similar shots kept jumping out at us. When combined into one video, they show that while the equipment, the town, and the mountain have changed, the reasons that people love to visit Vail have remained the same.

We’ve provided the trailer. Now come live the movie with us as we celebrate Vail’s 50th this season and look forward to the good times ahead.
