So what's it like?
No resort is more famous for its amazing powder back bowls
The largest single mountain ski area in the USA, Vail’s skiing is vast and varied, stretching across seven miles there is truly something for everyone. The front face of the mountain has tree cut runs suiting all abilities, and the extensive back bowls that Vail is famous for are ideal for more experienced powder lovers. Vail Village is the original village and a short stroll from Lionshead Village, which is looking pretty swanky after a multi million dollar renovation. Both these villages sit at the base of the slopes, each offering a large choice of restaurants from some of the best fine dining you’ll find in the USA to great bars serving inexpensive pub grub.
Beginners are excellently catered for, with a superb ski school, convenient lifts immediately behind the village, and plenty of long, wide-open, gentle runs right from the top of the mountain.
With 5,174 acres of incredible skiing, you can choose from miles of prepared pistes and superb groomed runs to the world famous Back Bowls. Colorado powder snow is so light that intermediates can enjoy most runs. Make sure to try the 'Blue Sky Basin'.
Double black diamond runs like Goshawk and Peregrine will really test the best. Revel in the glory of the acres of virgin powder snow in no less than six massive Back Bowls, plus mile upon mile of mogul fields, creating the perfect skiing experience.
