Summer Getaway

This is the best summer getaway ever from Dallas! We beat the heat every summer and get to Vail! Adventure Ridge, Ford Park, Vail Village...I could go on and on.

Vail is one of those fabulous ski resorts that is quite easy to get to especially if you are staying in or around Denver, a comfortable drive over the Continental Divide brings you to this marvelous community, the best way to get around in Vail is to use one of the several parking lots and use the local bus service,...

We spent the entire day at Adventure Ridge, we did everything several times and lunch at Bistro 14. Definitely take advantage of the $10 lunch coupons that give you $15 worth of food.

Love skiing here in the winter. One of my favorite mountains in the world -- great snow, blue skies, lots of terrain. While I could do without all the rude spanish-speaking foreigners who take over the town, I guess they buy the expensive stuff and keep the economy alive. But they are rude, their kids are rude and they seem... More

Great times had on this mountain. The village is awesome and the top of the mountain is amazing and we keep coming back. The Gondola - do the Lion's head One - is fun for adults and kids as well. We did have a bad experience with the resort's (idiot stoner) guy selling us lift tickets though. Being tourists -... More

We happened to choose Vail for our base of operations for this family trip. Well, there's no reason to leave vail. We spent four relaxing days exploring Vail and plan to come back. Perfect for families with children. Might I suggest spending a day exploring the village, then taking the gondola at Lionshead to let the kids explore the Adventure... More

My buddies and I came from Austin to enjoy some cooler summer weather and downhill biking. It was the first day of the bike season and Vail didn't seam ready. There had been some rain a couple days prior but no reason for the lift not to open on time. After a couple hour delay they opened the lift and... More

Vail is in my opinion the best ski resort. Not only because the snow is fantastic, but because their structure is really safe. Also, it has great restaurants and great hotels. It is not a cheap place, however their infrastructure really pays off.
