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 recent visits, which whilst not exclusive to Vail, seem to be habits I'm noticing more... 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 you do have to do some planning around how and where you want to finish... 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. Vail is very similiar to Heavenly Ski Resort ad both are very large with a... More

Even though it is the end of the season and they will close soon, certain runs had great conditions. We were told where to find the best conditions and what areas to avoid. Our three teens had a great time. Very quick customer service at the ticket counter. You might be able to get cheaper tickets in advance online. We... 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 worst part of the season with poor ski conditions.

A wonderful place to ski, but completely absurd prices. Unreasonable to expect people to pay $130 for a ski ticket on an off-season ski day.

I have skied here 5 times now and it never disappoints. A vast ski area with wide open runs, often we had the mountainside to ourselves. Snow is great and accompanied by sun in the Spring. If it was not for the expense and the distance, I would ski here every year.

Even during the busy Spring Break period we were able to find runs that we didn't have to share with anyone. The mountain is huge and the snow was great. Move to the Backside, Bowls, and Blue Sky to escape the crowds.
