Vail had some epic mountains and it was so beautiful. At the top, it was snowing but as I got lower it was raining! I went on only green slopes but overall had such a great time! the slopes are great and there weren't too many people !

Vail is a great, family-friendly mountain. The back bowls are awesome. Lots of options for lunch on the mountain.

It's all here! Great skiing. Nice mix of snow and sunshine. All staff were friendly and helpful! Food was very good on and off mountain. Nice short walk through village to gondola and then you know why you picked Vail!

Have been going to Vail for years. It's 5 star skiing, but slowly becoming 4 star experience due to increasing prices and crowds. Ski weekdays to avoid crowds.

I've been skiing and snowboarding for a while, and Vail is definitely among the 3 top ski resorts in the USA, The mountain is quite big and really easy to understand, the slopes are mainly intermediate/advanced and the surroundings are amazing. It is expensive but it really is worth it.

We had pretty good snow and no lines so felt lucky. Food options on the mountain were OK answer do we managed to get in about 20,000 vertical feed a day without too much effort. Plenty of runs to try ! We will go back !

Great Mountain and great service. The only reason I list them less than 5 is price. It is extremely expensive here without the level of service that one would expect for the price. Staying in hotels in the village will easily set you back $700+ night, our hotel was a little over $900/night for two of us and lift tickets... More

First time to ski at Vail, I'm a Deer Valley regular. Absolutely Loved the length of the the runs (especially blues - Born Free and Simba) - and loved the chance to ski a few back bowls (China Bowl and Teacup Bowl) since those are usually reserved for black diamonds. Loved how wide the runs were - never felt crowded,... More

Vail, it’s truly an exceptional ski resort. The slopes, the lifts, the village, the restaurants and shopping all combine to make it a fantastic destination. But after many years of going to Vail I am thinking it might be time to change. Why? It’s very expensive to stay and ski here. I actually think the value for the dollar at... More
