Lionshead Community Profile
When it comes to ski resort living, the adage about “location, location, location” rings even more true. Located just half a mile west of Vail Village, Lionshead is a charming base village that’s home to all the amenities you’d want for a winter retreat.
Lionshead is the hub for the Eagle Bahn gondola, which whisks skiers to the slopes in the winter. Whether you’re looking for kid-approved adventure zones like Chaos Canyon or grown-up adventure zones like Blue Sky Basin and Game Creek Bowl, the Eagle Bahn is your chariot to the trails. After a full day on the mountain, the colorful boutiques are waiting to catch your eye as tantalizing aromas waft from the variety of restaurants that Lionshead calls home. Grab an après ski beer on the deck of Garfinkles or raise a glass of bubbly at Tavern on the Square—every day here is worth celebrating.
With the Bavarian, alpine elegance of Arrabelle as its anchor, there is no shortage of luxurious rental and ownership opportunities in Lionshead—many of which are located slopeside. Choose from single family, duplex, condominium and townhome residences of various sizes and pricing. Lionshead has recently experienced a renaissance and most of the offerings are new or freshly renovated. Styles range from sleek mountain modern to European chic; there’s something to satisfy almost any design desire.
From the real estate expert
“With the Eagle Bahn Gondola and Born Free Express at the base it’s twice as fast to get to the top of the mountain in Lionshead. Lionshead real estate tends to be more affordable than Vail Village and offers some of the only true ski-in, ski-out condominiums in the resort. Spa, shopping, cafés and fine dining are all just steps away in the European-style ski village.” – Timm Kluender
