Vail Resorts has a long history in the ski industry, beginning with the opening of Vail Mountain in 1962. Today, our publicly-traded company is the leading global mountain resort operator with 37 resorts in 15 states and three countries—including some of the world’s most iconic destinations as well as travel-centric retail and hospitality businesses. Our mission, which comes to life thanks to our brave, ambitious, and passionate employees, is to create an Experience of a Lifetime™ for our guests.

We are driven by our corporate responsibility platform, EpicPromise.
