West Vail is split by I-70 into the north and south sides. West Vail North consists of the town’s longtime businesses like City Market, Safeway, McDonalds and Sports Authority and numerous shops, delis and pizzerias. Above the commercial area is where some of Vail’s first settlers built homes. A touch of Austrian flair and modern contemporary housing now encompass this very desirable area of the Vail Valley. West Vail residents enjoy easy access to local services and still are only a few minutes from Vail Village. The Town of Vail bus system services West Vail South and North.
