Vail tops the charts every year in ski
publications for best Colorado ski resort. Vail is huge, with a great ski town
at the base, and great lifts to get you up and out - into Vail's
immense Back Bowls.
Vail has over 5,200 acres of skiing, bountiful snowfall, high blue sky and gorgeous Colorado sunshine. For families, Vail has excellent kids ski lessons and adventure camps, plus events all season long in the European village and on the slopes. A family ski vacation to Vail promises epic skiing on the Front and Backside plus Fort Whippersnapper, plus day trips to sister resorts Beaver Creek, Keystone and Breckenridge.
Vail celebrated 50 years winter 2013 (1962), with a new
10-passenger gondola complete with heated seats and WiFi - so very Vail! All hail!
Last season, a new high speed six pack replaced lift #4, the Mountaintop Express.
