Opening in 1970, Lionshead incorporated more modern architecture for its time as compared to the European flair of Vail Village. Today, the area has some of the most elegant and sophisticated architecture in the Rocky Mountains. It was completely renovated over the past 8 years. That renovation continues today. Luxury condos within walking distance to the slopes, restaurants, upscale shops. The convenient location makes it a very desirable area to vacation or own property. Home to the Arrabelle, Ritz Carlton, Lionsquare Lodge, Marriott, Montaneros, which are some Vail’s most prestigious lodges. Lionshead has been transformed over the years but still maintains some of old Vail’s charm.
