“Great Trails and Lifts but VERY expensive even for CO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Went with brothers and children - slopes for all. Strange to not have any lighted skiing - guess I have been to too many East Coast slopes since they close down at 5 or so everyday. Hard to get the kids and family out early enough to take advantage of more than a few hours. Tickets and lite lunch easy exceed $1000/day.

“Charlie Clarke for Mayor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

LOL- We go snowboarding all over the country. I like to still get a lesson here and there. Charlie Clarke is hands down the best instructor EVER! You can't beat Vail Mountain! I miss it already!

“Skiing doesn't get any better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

You have to experience the vast terrain. It would take a whole season to explore the front and back bowls. Plenty of variety for all to enjoy....Words don't quite do the experience justice.

“Sooooo pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We visited Vail for a day trip with friends that live in Colorado, wow... the prettiest place in America! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. It was a wet day and that didn't take away from the sheer beauty and the fresh air. The quant shops, the pretty waterfalls, streams and gardens. The mountains were spectacular!
