Did You Know?
Did you know that Vail's Lionshead base was named after a famous rock outcropping in the nearby town of Minturn that actually resembled the head of a lion? In fact, Vail's Marketing team actually used a live lion as part of the opening celebration in 1968. Today, the area is known for the Eagle's Nest gondola and the numerous ski runs and lifts such as Simba, Bwana, Pride and Safari which pay homage to the African heritage of its namesake.

TedX Vail
Since its inaugural event in 2010, TEDxVail has become a major venue for spreading ideas & inspiring change. With a million views online, TEDxVail Talks have helped propel ideas throughout Vail and out into the world. Speakers have included artists, innovators, musicians, scholars, athletes, business owners, and brilliant thinkers from all walks of life. This year they will host 25 speakers from various backgrounds.
