Great place to ski, Vail offers everything you would expect in a top notch ski resort. Good restaurants, winter sports like skiing, cross country skiing, ice skating and more. Vail is beautiful and has lots of shopping also. Skiing is not cheap as as of March 2017 a one day lift ticket is $189.00 adult. You can buy the Epic... More

Just finished a one-week family vacation in Vail--we skiied every day. The resort is large enough that you that can always find an area away from the crowds. They've made some improvements since our last visit by installing 6 person express chair lifts in a couple key locations that really help move people along. There is suitable terrain for everyone...

I've had the opportunity to ski on many different locations both in the US and Canada, and I have to say that Vail is my definite favorite. So many options and places you can go, you can be there for weeks and never get bored for one second. Also, after every day of skiing, there are a ton of activities... More

The slopes are maintained meticulously. Even during spring (break) skiing, the snow condition is impeccable. You get your money worth. The mountain is SO big that we never need to ski on the same slope twice and it's never crowed.

I'm not a winter/ski person. Tho totally worth going up the gondola and checking out the scenery. Amazing. I didn't go up with alot of snow around tho enough to walk thru and enjoy the vibe of the area. Would recommend making sure you have gloves and a beanie otherwise just the coat is fine for this time of year.... More

We have been here many times and keep coming back. The ski area is large especially when the bowls are open. I Have been her (for 30 days ) about 5 years back and it didn't snow once, but this is not usual. Even then we skied every day and used the opportunity to develop some variable conditions skills.

The good - the staff, from front desk to bellboy to housekeeping and in the restaurants are all top notch! And the location is fantastic. But overall the physical plant is tired. Examples - the emergency phone at the indoor pool is full of static. I was here two years ago and told maintenance It was falling off the wall... More

We have been skiing/snowboarding at many resorts across the country and Canada and Vail ranks very high on the list of resorts. Great variety of terrain. Only issue is everything is very expensive.

Like the title, Vail is known (and lives up to the reputation) for being one of the best & upscale ski resorts. It is absolutely family friends with a great ski program that runs from 9-3pm, including lunch, so you can explore sans children!
