North America attracts not less people than South America. The main difference is that to South America holidaymakers go to sunbathe, swim, and enjoy all the pleasures of summer season whereas to North America they go to ski, skate, and enjoy all the joys of winter season. Have you got the difference?
Tourism industry in South America started earlier than in North America. The last one has been still exploring. And the reason is the climate. I am going to tell you about one of the beautiful places in North America in Colorado State named Vail. Vail has all the amenities for the full time resident - from an excellent school system to a modern airport capable of handling large airliners, and even cosmetic surgery. Recreation activities that keep tourists busy all year round attract many of them every year.
We should say, ?Thanks? to 10th Mountain Division trooper Peter Seibert and local rancher Earl Eaton who discovered the mountain in the mid-1950s. When they reached the top of the mountain they realized that it would be a great place for ski resorts. Some years later, in January 1962 their dream came true when the U.S. Forest Service granted these two courageous men the final permit. We should admit that a very good idea about ski resorts struck Seibert and Eaton as Vail has become the largest ski area in North America.
Vail vacation is promising to be enjoyable as the area has all the activities and amenities for rest and entertainment, and some more are coming. Over the past 10 years, Vail Resorts has invested more than $125 million in improvements on Vail Mountain. Soon, Vail Village and Lionshead will get the same attention. Vail Resorts and the Town of Vail are working together to make North America's top ski resort destination even better. Plans call for new skier services facilities, additional shopping, dining and lodging, a new ice-skating rink, entertainment venues, enhanced streetscapes and landscaping, and new residential opportunities.
Lionshead Village is pedestrian mall located about 3/4 mile west of Vail Village. Currently it features shops, restaurants, lodges and the Vail Valley's only gondola. The Eagle Bahn Gondola is open in both the winter and summer to provide the fastest and most comfortable passage up Vail Mountain. The bulk of Vail's lodging accommodations that are within walking distance can be found in Lionshead.
Only 2 miles from Vail Mountain, West Vail has a variety of affordable restaurants, retail shops, lodging and supermarkets. The free Town of Vail Shuttle service runs throughout West Vail and can take skiers into one of the villages where they can access one of Vail's many chairlifts.
As you head towards the village areas, you will pass the Vail Golf Course, which is located just one mile east of Vail Village on the South side of I-70. This area offers a beautiful residential area with limited lodging rentals that can be accessed by the free bus service. The Vail Golf Club is a par 71 championship public course at 8,200 feet elevation.
If you?re considering purchasing timeshare in Vail from a resort or hotel developer, it's important for you to know that resales can provide you with a great alternative. And the main advantage that Vail timeshare resales may give you is saving thousands of dollars.
