The Town of Vail, founded in 1966, may be a mere baby boomer, but the area has a long history as a hunting ground and summer residence of the Ute Indians—who called these majestic peaks “The Shining Mountains.” Later, settlers mined and ranched the area, and during World War II, it was very close to the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division in Camp Hale between Vail and Leadville, training skiers and mountaineers for combat in the Italian Alps. After the war, one of those veterans, Peter Seibert, returned to establish Vail, modeled after the charming Alpine villages in the European Alps.
