Vail Valley Homes and Properties
This page is the Eagle County, Colorado Mountain Habitat Community Profile. There are actually quite a few towns and areas that make up Eagle County as a whole. For purposes of this website and blog, we are choosing to focus on the ski towns of Vail and Beaver Creek / Avon. And while we know those areas well, we can help you start the process of comparing properties here in Breckenridge and then look at opportunities in the valley.
Eagle County, Colorado - Mountain Habitat Community Profile
The mountain habitats of Vail and Avon are lush and forest-filled, while traveling further west opens up land to more of a ranch like atmosphere. Almost a third of town-owned land is open space, and nearby Vail Pass is a recreation mecca. Even a handful of huts offer electricity and creature comforts that coincide with the luxuries of the Vail Valley.
What Life is like in Eagle County
If you've never been to Vail Village, let me describe it for you. It has a very European feel, and an amphitheatre and nearby gardens create a wonderful summertime experience. The recreation path travels alongside the Eagle River, where bicyclists and walkers can watch water sports fans negotiate the white water.
