RealVail.com is an online news, politics, opinion and outdoor lifestyle site that delivers an independent view of the events and people that shape the Vail Valley, the state of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region.
The site was launched in 2007 by a group of mountain editors and reporters who sought a new way forward for journalism in the new-media era. David O. Williams and Tom Boyd, both former editors of Vail’s first paper, the Vail Trail, took their decades-long experience in community journalism and used it to create a content-rich, informative, and personal online representation of the mountain towns they’ve come to know and love.
After six years learning the ins and outs of online media, and scraping by during a difficult recession, RealVail.com and its sister site, RockyMountainPost.com, re-launched under a new business model in 2013.
