Absolutely stunning area. Everything was well taken care of and beautiful. I have heard a lot of people talk about how great a place it is in the winter, but the middle of summer is where it is at. Lots of things to do, eat,...More

I would recommend skiing at Breckenridge which is 40 minutes away and closer to Denver. They are higher elevation (9,600 feet at base) because Vail is lower elevation and the front of the Mountain melts early in the spring. Breckenridge stays open until the third week in April. Not because of snow but because skiers have lost interest and not enough demand to keep open.
