EAST VAIL THE QUINTESSENTIAL ROCKY MOUNTAIN ALPINE SETTING For unspoiled advantages and the natural beauty of Vail, head to the neighborhood of East Vail. This area is less densely developed than Vail Village and that is one of its greatest virtues. With Vail Pass to the east and a paved bike path that runs through the Vail Golf Course to the west, East Vail is, perhaps, the perfect location for the avid outdoorsman. For hikers, bikers, cross-country skiers and ice-climbers, it’s nirvana. In late spring and summer, Gore Creek, with its lush aspen and lodge pole pines and surrounding waterfalls, comes alive. The Vail Racquet Club’s tennis cour ts are up and running and Bighorn Park becomes the neighborhood’s meeting place with its playground, off-leash dog park, picnic tables, open field and pond. Bikers can begin their day by riding up Vail Pass, and hikers have a choice of terrific hiking trails. From beginner to exper t, the trails of Bighorn Creek, Gore Creek, Pitkin Creek and Deluge Lake provide hikers with spectacular views, stunning aspen groves, waterfalls and high alpine lakes that cannot be found anywhere else in the valley. In winter, the cascading waterfalls turn to ice , and “The Fang,”a popular ice-climbing waterfall, comes to life, and cross-countr y skiers head to town on the groomed trails of the Vail Nordic Center locatedon the fairways of the Vail Golf Course.

Each Office Is Independently Owned and Oper ated.

With Vail Ski Resor t just a shor t free bus ride away, and the East Vail Market and Liquor Store at the entrance to the neighborhood, East Vail provides its homeowners with all the conveniences and access desired, while tucked into a quite corner of the Vail Valley.

In winter, you’ll find residents heading up the mountain on snowshoes or walking their dogs on the snow- covered fairways. One of EagleVail’s best-kept secrets is the extensive trail system that winds through the neighborhood.

CORDILLERA SURROUNDED BY ONE MILLION ACRES OF THE WHITE RIVER NATIONAL FOREST Comprising over 7,000 acres, and surrounded by one million acres of the White River National Forest, Cordillera is not just one neighborhood but rather four totally different, gated, communities near downtown Edwards, each with its own personality. The Divide, The Ranch and The Summit are accessed on the south side of I-70 just off Highway 6 past Edwards along scenic Squaw Creek Road. The Valley Club is accessed on the nor th side of I-70 in Edwards, just past the Vail Valley Medical Center campus and through the private gates of The Cordillera Valley Club. THE DIVIDE At 8,000 feet, The Divide, where the homes are European in design and architecture, is home to the renowned Lodge & Spa at Cordillera. Homeowners in The Divide have access to all the amenities at the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera, including dining at Mirador and Grouse on the Green, as well as access to the Dave Pelz-designed Short Course at The Golf Club of Cordillera. Each hole of the 9-hole, par 3 course features challenging shots and fabulous views of the Vail Valley below. THE RANCH Formerly a working ranch, The Ranch’s homes largely reflect American West architecture with log, stone and timber. Homes in The Ranch provide numerous year-round oppor tunities to enjoy the beauty that Color ado has to offer. There are 21 miles of hiking and winter sports trails, as well as a Nordic ski track for winter enjoyment. Summer activities are augmented by the 18-hole, Hale Irwin-designed Mountain Course that challenges golfers with narrow fairways, while following the natural terrain of the area.

THE VALLEY CLUB The Valley Club is uniquely located on the Valley floor along the sunny, nor th side of I-70 in a high deser t community comprised mostly of American West architecture - with some homes featuring more mountain-modern design. Considered to be one of the best course designers in the world today, Tom Fazio sculpted the 18-hole Valley Course into the high-mountain desert topography of the Cordillera Valley Club. Because of its southern exposure and lower elevation, this course can remain open for an extended playing season. The clubhouse and fitness facility features an outdoor pool and hot tub, as well as two tennis cour ts, and the Chaparral Restaurant. In addition to the world-class golf, hiking and Nordic skiing, Cordillera has its own equestrian center that can board up to 48 horses.
