Population and Facilities
December 16, 2003
POPULATION: Yearly population of 4,000 (about 30% of the housing supply) with an increase to around 40,000 in the winter months.
FACILILTIES: The Vail Valley has accommodations in lodges, condominiums and hotels. Its restaurants offer an array of cuisine, from simple fare to fine gourmet dining, plus lots of bars and nightclubs. Numerous shops and boutiques give new meaning to the phrase “power shopping.” For those seeking vacation lodging, seasonal brochures are available which list all the properties in the resort. Wintertime occupancy rates may run over 90 percent. Summer weekends are typically sold out during July and August. We recommend making reservations early.
