  • Ah, Vail Ski Resort! A wondrous place for those who seek adventure and thrill upon the slopes. I recently visited this resort and I must say, I was quite pleased with my experience. The slopes were in excellent condition, well-maintained and offered a great challenge for skiers of all levels. From the wide open spaces to the winding paths, I was able to enjoy my time on the slopes to the fullest. However, I must offer a word of caution to those who plan on visiting this resort. Do make sure to check the times when the lifts shut down, depending on where your home base is located. Though there are buses available, it is best to be prepared and not be caught off guard. The slopes, the facilities, and the staff were all great, and I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a thrilling ski experience.
  • My new favorite ski resort. The back bowls are amazing and wide open. Every run has great tree runs close by. Signage on the front side is amazing. Could improve signage in the back side in my opinion. Really easy to traverse the mountain. Staff was great as well.
