Welcome to Vail

Vail is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Which is why those of us lucky enough to live, visit, and play here care about keeping our footprint small, our resources plentiful, and our contribution to sustainability top of mind. It’s the least we can do for the place we all love.


Here's a Wild Idea: We want to turn your creekside landscaping into a work of art.

It's all part of our sustainability plan to keep Vail beautiful.


In July 2014, Vail launched an ambitious sustainability initiative that made recycling mandatory, instituted wildlife-resistant containers, and launched a public information campaign, which you just happen to be experiencing right now.
