I attended a conference here in May. A spring snow storm came through the day before I arrived but it didn't damper plans at all. It was an amazing drive from Denver to Vail. The snow covered mountains in spring were a treat. There were...More

My husband & I are avid skiers & spend much of the winter skiing at Vail. This is big mountain skiing at its best. It may not be as 'steep & deep' as say Park City or Jackson Hole, but Vail offers vast terrain with...More

We love to ski Vail in March because the weather is warmer, the sky is blue and the snow is still super fun! My 4-year old son was in Ski School at Golden Peak for the week. It was his 2nd year of Ski School...More

As a certified ski and snowboard instructor within the state of Colorado, I've skied numerous resorts throughout this state and others. While Vail has its allure, if you are searching for more challenging or varying terrain, there are far better options available that include the...More

On the whole, Vail is a real pleasure to visit. Great combinations of terrain means there is something for the whole family of differing abilities to explore without needing to split up to visit opposite sides of the resort. Couple of things I've noticed about...More

This resort skis really well. The inbound blue and black runs were a lot of fun with really great flow. Lots of different zones to spend your day in. The back bowls are a bit tough to get to and to get back from so...More

The prior day I had gone snowboarding at Beaver Creek & I would have to say I prefer Vail over Beaver Creek. I was initially hesitant at how big this Vail mountain is but it is really set up in a simple and logical manner....More

Overpriced! But so many runs and ski options for all levels. Would like to see them cater more to Americans than just rich, Latin Americans who flaunt their money here. It's a beautiful place but just ridiculously overpriced even in hotels and restaurants in the...More

I will be in Vail from March 17-21. The weather seems to be warming up, with temperatures forecasted to reach high 50's. Will this temperature melt the snow and be a bad ski time? Will a few days of high 50's melt all the snow?????

Temperatures in the 50's will not melt all the snow. Hopefully the lows will be in the 30's. The top of the mountain is 11,500 above sea level so it will be colder there than in town or at the base. Toward the end of the... More

We will be in Vail the week of March 13-18th. The pricing for snowboard lessons is so high!!!! We want a semi private class for snowboarding with our two teenage boys but the school does NOTHING to help arrange the groups. Anyone interested in splitting the cost for snowboard lessons for one day

we are staying at the Marriott Lionsgate.....struggling to decide where to rent equipment from due to the proximity of the hotel to the lifts. I have read reviews on trip advisor that stated that the ski valet at the Marriott was less than desirable,(stored boots outside/wet/etc.....) but wanted to know if there was a rental place where we could walk the 150-400 yds to the gondola in our snow boots, get on the gondola, then get our boots and skis at the top (store our boots while skiing, then store our skis and and ski boots while going back to the hotel on the gondola)....any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Double Diamond, Skibase, Vail Sports are all within 100 yards of the gondola. But remember - this is Vail; it ain't cheap! Look online and in the village booklets for offers.
