The Town of Vail Colorado has a population of about 5,000 residents and is part of a string of small towns along the 1-70 corridor that include Avon, Eagle and the Beaver Creek ski area. The area operates the largest free bus system in the US and is very pedestrian and bicycle oriented. Vail is also one of the top ski destinations in North America. It architectural focus is on creating a swiss/rustic mountain setting with attention to detail and lots of public art. Hope you enjoy.

NOTE: These picture where taken during the middle of October which is the heart of the off season, so crowds were light (mainly locals), plus I try and take pictures without people.

Looked to me like more buildings than people.

Great pics. Would be interested to see more of the other side of Vail as well (literally), which is much more "mountain suburban" in character...the Safeway, the couple of strip malls, and some of the places people actually live in (well, those with lots of money, anyway, as it seems most locals actually live outside of Vail proper.) Still, well taken and definitely showed the tourist side of the town!
