Conditions are not bad if it was early December. Mother Nature hasn’t been kind to the Vail Valley this season. Not busy though even on a Saturday. $189 window price is way too much for the conditions though.

This is not our first trip to Vail. I’m not a beginner skier but had not previously been comfortable with the mountain. This time I took a mountain tour. The tour is free and Karen was an excellent guide. She helped us figure out the...More

It snowed the night we arrived and we were amazed at the gorgeous powder. It was like flying on a magic carpet. I even saw a moose grazing in the aspens with her older calves on the side of the mountain, almost completely unnoticed by...More

Unfortunately very little snow for our trip. With <40% of the mountain open lift tickets shouldn’t be full price. Still had fun. Easy to get onto the mountain and lift lines were short. Terrain for all abilities. Non skiers can take the gondola up the...More

It’s a nice resort but check out the trail map......you can’t get down to Vail village without going on skinny switchbacks. The whole mountain is kinda like that. Doesn’t come close to Breckinridge in my opinion.

More Terrain - which means the skier's can spread out and the slopes are not so crowded. Beautiful Mountain with wonderful services and fast lifts.

Our family's fifth visit from the east coast, always a great time. I echo everyone's positive comments ( great trails, friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, decent to good food). Not a lot of snow when we went last week but that's beyond anyone's control. I would...More

There are many places for family ski vacations and each had their attraction but Vail is my favorite for several reasons. The quality of the snow is superior to any of the resorts closer to me on the east cost. The travel time is easier...More

I can't say enough about Vail. Although I can't stand the parking options, everything else makes up for it. Great snow and grooming. Knowledgeable staff. I could spend all day in Blue Sky

For beginners, go to Golden Peak only. The instructors are wonderful and groups not too large due to one lift for Gopher Hill at Golden Peak.

Temperatures in the 50's will not melt all the snow. Hopefully the lows will be in the 30's. The top of the mountain is 11,500 above sea level so it will be colder there than in town or at the base. Toward the end of the... More
