As the third largest single-mountain resort in the US, Vail is a huge ski holiday experience delivering over 300 days of sunshine, 900 cm of snowfall, 5,289 acres of ski terrain including seven legendary back bowls, the most groomed terrain on the planet and a lift-served inbound backcountry skiing experience at Blue Sky Basin – so there is literally something for everyone at Vail.
For the adventurous, there are three outstanding terrain parks and for the family looking for fun experiences outside of their skiing time, you can check out Adventure Ridge’s new Forest Flyer Mountain Coaster as you fly through the forest on a raised alpine coaster (think bobsled on rails) or you may prefer family fun Tubing, Ski Biking, Kid’s Snowmobile or snowshoeing.
For those of you looking to fully immerse yourself in the natural surrounds and learn more about this pristine area – you can visit the Nature Discovery Centre at the top of Eagle Bahn Gondola.
Vail is consistently chosen as the ‘go to place’ for hosting world-class events like the 2015 Skiing World Championships and it’s no wonder because Vail consistently delivers new and exciting skiing experiences as you glide or charge around the hill on their light, dry powder, packed powder and across kilometres of hero groomed slopes.
Vail Village is a mix of old-world European charm and increasingly new modern grand scale state-of-the-art developments that showcase the very latest in skiing luxury and are home to warm heartfelt down to earth service, amazing food experiences and restaurants, bars, nightlife and shopping with the area being serviced by a free local bus system.
A long stay trip to Vail for yourself and the family simply has to be on your bucket list!
Owned and operated by Vail Resorts, you can ski and ride Vail on an Epic Pass.
