Vail deserves it billing as one of the world’s premier ski resorts. At seven miles wide, finding fresh tracks is easy, in fact on an average day, there are only two skiers per acre and on a busy day, only four! The front side of Vail Mountain is served by a superb and modern network of mainly high speed detachable lifts and has terrain for all abilities.
Vail is a large ski town with a distinctive European Alpine character, made up of 3 base areas; Vail Village, Lionshead and Golden Peak. These are mostly pedestrian and feature a wide array of shops and over 75 restaurants and bars. The apres-ski is exceptional. In addition there are numerous other activities like snowmobiling, dog sledding, sleigh rides and ice skating to name a few.
