North America's Premier International Resort Community


Welcome to Vail! We want this season to be a success just as much as you do, so let’s each do our part to Save Our Season and Keep Vail Safe & Open.


Mask Zones & Safety Protocols

That mask looks good on you! A mandatory outdoor mask zone has been implemented in designated areas of Vail Village, Lionshead, Golden Peak and Cascade Village. The executive order was effective, Nov. 7. 


Five Commitments of Containment

Please join us in taking personal responsibility to make safe choices at home and away.

  • I will maintain 6 feet of social distance
  • I will cover my face in public
  • I will wash my hands often
  • I will stay home when I am sick
  • I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms


Orange Level: High Risk

Eagle County has moved to level "Orange" on the state's COVID-19 dial. 

Synexis BioDefense System

Offering an additional layer of protection, we have installed the Synexis anti-microbrial system throughout the town’s buildings and buses. We are the first municipality in the nation to comprehensively install a state-of-the-art microbial reduction system in occupied spaces throughout its public facilities and buses. The devices have been added to air-handling systems in all town owned buildings including: Vail Public Library, Dobson Ice Arena, Vail Golf & Nordic Clubhouse, Vail Village and Lionshead Welcome Centers, the two transit centers, Colorado Snowsports Museum, Donovan Pavilion, Vail Municipal Complex, plus the three fire stations, public works buildings and other facilities. In addition, the entire bus fleet, totaling 33 vehicles, has been equipped with the system. The Synexis equipment is designed to work within enclosed, occupied spaces. The continuous, chemical-free system complements the town’s additional cleaning protocols to provide wide-ranging environmental protection efforts for Vail’s guests, residents and employees.

Vail Transit is making every effort to transport passengers in a safe and efficient manner using guidance provided by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Here’s what you should know:

• For your safety, starting Dec. 21 buses are running at a reduced capacity of 20 people; plan ahead and expect delays
• Doors will be closed when capacity is reached; extra buses will be used during AM and PM peak times
• Face coverings are required by everyone (age 3 and older) while riding on the bus
• Face coverings are required to be worn at all transit stops when others are present and in the designated mask mandate zone within the villages. 
• Be respectful of others and create physical separation to the extent possible while riding
• Plan your non-essential trips during non-peak times
• Effective Dec. 21, service between Golden Peak, Vail Village and Lionshead has been adjusted to route on the frontage road. As a result, walking will be required to reach pedestrian destinations along East and West Meadow Drive in Vail Village as well as the Vail Public Library and Dobson Ice Arena.
• Offering an additional layer of protection, Vail has pioneered the use of a Synexis anti-microbial system on all buses.
