Ice Bar Returns To Vail Mountain

Vail Resorts has decided to bring back its famous Ice Bar that was created in the 1960s when the resort first opened! Thanks to Bill Whiteford, the original ice bar was created in February of 1965. This is very exciting news because the original ice bar only lasted for one season back when the resort first opened! Vail will be bringing back not one, but two ice bars this season to kick off its 60th-year anniversary!

The two ice bars will be built at Eagle’s Nest and Wildwood located on the top of the mountain! In addition to the ice bars, there will be plastic “igloos” with metal frames that guests can reserve ahead of time for use. Skiers and snowboarders alike will be able to enjoy a full bar and limited food menus. Vail is hoping to have the two bars up and running by December!

We look forward to seeing you on the mountain this season!
