The mountain is so huge and so nice. I lived two winter seasons there and still can find new places to shred. There are many hidden shacks and log slide parks that only locals now. Snow is always fresh and good to ride, very nice place to be!

Vail is one of the best places for vacations in USA: summer is beautiful with a wonderful weather and during winter, it does have one of the best skiing slopes for all types of proficiency. Excellent for business, friends or family gatherings. Expensive but it is worth every penny!

The activities and the views are worth the gondola fee. Zip lining is one of the best I have ever seen and been on. The roller coaster was so much fun we rode it for a second time...and we were all adults (no kids). :)

Huge ski resort with tons of runs of all difficulty and length. Beautiful scenery but the word is out - it gets packed on weekends. It is also very expensive. Day passes are now pushing $160, parking is $25 and I've seen slices of pizza for $10.

Vail has an incredible mountain, with a great walking village at the base, excellent on mountain services as well. I always feel welcome and the employees are smiling and helpful. The views are spectacular especially from the lodges at the top of the mountain.
