Vintage Vail In Photos

January 17, 2023

Vail Mountain today announced the second installment of fine art photographer Gray Malin’s collection celebrating the legendary resort’s 60th Anniversary. The new Gray Malin in Vail series brings the mountain’s storied emotions to the forefront through a series of photographs inspired by the Vail lifestyle in the 1960s. Known for effortless fun and energy around every turn, the classic spirit of Vail Mountain comes to life in a modern, vintage aesthetic that is unique to Gray Malin.

Diving deep into Vail Mountain’s photo archives, Gray Malin drew inspiration from the early days of Vail Mountain; from its vast terrain, limitless views, and seven legendary back bowls to its laidback après ski culture with spontaneous mountain picnics and ice bars made from snow. The Gray Malin in Vail series breathes new life into these nostalgic mountain moments in an iconic way that guests and fans will love.

The Gray Malin in Vail series is now available to the public and infused throughout the entire resort experience. Vail Mountain has displayed “then-and-now” images across the mountain, as well as launched new guest experiences inspired by the collection. —Vita Daily
