Like Vail Village, Lionshead – a short mile from Vail – is a mecca of fine shops, an assortment of restaurants and first-class accommodations, making living in this village, essentially, carefree. With the Eagle Bahn gondola right there to whip you up the mountain in a manner of minutes and ski school at the base of the mountain – getting started on a winter’s morning is a piece of cake!
The summer months bring a plethora of festivities to Lionshead including free concerts, art festivals – topped off with the Vail Jazz Festival, held on Labor Day Weekend. You can ride on the gondola to take you up to Adventure Ridge and a choice of hikes ranging from easy, like Eagle’s Loop or the more challenging such as Berrypicker. Mountain bikers, too, will find a range of trails to get their hearts racing! And road bikers can just hop on the bicycle path to go wherever
Lionshead is also within a short walk or free in town bus ride to the Vail’s public library as well as the Vail Valley Medical Center…. just in case.
