About Lionshead Village
Vail Village and Lionshead Village are the two base ski mountain villages of Vail Mountain. The ski mountain filters down into these two areas. They are both quaint cobblestone lined alpine villages filled with restaurants, shopping, parks, ice skating rinks and more.
The two villages are about a mile apart and serviced every few minutes by a free in town bus service that is very easy to hop on and off. Toddlers and young children have even been known to find the bus ride itself entertainment. Riding the free in-town bus has made lists of the top things to do with toddlers in Vail.
The villages are walking villages, and cars are not able to drive in the villages themselves. The I-70 access road is the road to get between either village and each village houses a large paid parking structure where guests can park cars.
A bike path that runs along the river also connects the two villages and is a wonderful route to get around during the summer.
Lionshead is home to many wonderful restaurants and shops, and it is just a bit quieter. Also the Eagle Bahn Gondola goes out of Lionshead which takes guests to Eagle’s Nest which is home to Adventure Ridge in the winter and Epic Discovery in the summer. These mountain-top adventure playgrounds are popular with all guests, but especially families.
Vail Square is the center of Vail Village and during the winter offers the Alderhof ice skating rink. In the summer it is home to concerts and more.
There is a small grocery store, The Market at Vail, located across from the Lionshead Parking Structure.
Lionshead village is also home to Imagination Station, a wonderful children’s museum. Sunbird Park, also known as Pod or Nest Park in Lionshead actually has been recognized as one of the coolest parks by Travel + Leisure.
