History of The Lodge at Vail
In March of 1957, after seven hours of climbing, two former members of the 10th Mountain Division, Peter Seibert and Earl Eaton, arrived at the summit of what was later to become known as Vail Mountain. On that golden afternoon, as they dropped into the untracked powder and carved their way back to the valley floor, the dream of Vail began.
Over the next five years, the town of Vail, named after the pass at the eastern end of the valley, began to take shape. Boosted by the founding of the Vail Corporation and the purchase of a 500-acre ranch at the base of the mountain, the dream quickly began to take shape.
At that time, the U.S. Forest Service, which administers the mountain land, stipulated that nightly lodging be included as part of the development plan. And so The Lodge at Vail came to be.
When Vail Mountain opened for skiing on December 15, 1962, with a single gondola, a pair of chair lifts, eight ski instructors, and a $5 lift ticket, The Lodge at Vail had been open for merely a month. However, designed with a classic Alpine character, at the base of the ski slopes, The Lodge at Vail soon became the cornerstone property of what would eventually become the vibrant Vail Village of today.
From its humble beginnings, Vail's founders could never have dreamed that their vision, (with a gondola ride, breakfast, dinner, and lodging (priced at just $10 in 1963), would some day turn out to be North America's premier ski resort. Nor could they have imagined that the classic 65-room chalet-style inn just steps from Chair 1 would one day transform into a world-renowned mountain hotel and spa.
