The Eagle County Regional Airport is one of Colorado’s busiest airports, particularly during peak winter days. It is located between the cities of Eagle and Gypsum, about 36 miles from the popular Vail ski resorts. Eagle County Regional Airport is 4 miles west of Eagle, Colorado. The Vail-Eagle airport or the Eagle-Vail Airport serves Eagle County, nearby Vail, and the Beaver Creek ski resorts. There is a single long runway of 9,000 feet in length.
The History Channel rates this busy winter destination as one of its most extreme airports due to EGE’s elevation, variability in weather, mountainous terrain, and challenging departure procedures. During the ski season, EGE is the second busiest airport in Colorado. With a longer runway than the Aspen Airport, Eagle can accept larger jet charter aircraft for takeoff and landing. The airport is located just off Interstate 70 and Highway 6 and is owned by Eagle County.
