Getting to Vail Colorado
Colorado – You can fly into Denver International Airport (DIA) or into Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE). DIA is approximately 2 hours (by air) east of Los Angeles and San Francisco, 1.5 hours north of Dallas and Houston, 2 hours west of Chicago, and about 4 hours west of the east coast (NYC, Wash DC, Miami). Denver is the capital city of Colorado and the major connection point for out-of-state visitors.
Eagle County – is the home of Vail and Beaver Creek Resorts and is approximately 110 miles west of Denver International Airport (DIA). You can rent a car at DIA or you can take a van from the airport; this “might be” a good option because once in Vail or Beaver Creek a car is very often not needed. Alternatively, you can fly directly into Eagle County Airport (EGE) which is 30-40 minutes west of Beaver Creek and Vail.
