Best place to stay to get back bowles

I am going to Vail for the first time. Looking to stay where we can get up the mountain and away from the crowds when we Ski. We are going on February Vacation week.

Rates are a concern, I have not reached the unlimited funds yet!.

To get to the back bowls:

1. Chair 8 (Born Free) from Lionshead to Chair 2 (Avanti) to Chair 7 (Game Creek). This allows you to actually ski there.

2. Eagle Bahn Gondola from Lionshead to Chair 7 (Game Creek). This requires a catwalk - less skiing.

3. Riva Bahn lift from Gold Peak to new Chair 10 - this will drop you right at Two Elk.

4. Vista Bahn from Vail Village to Chair 4 (Mountaintop Express). This will be the most crowded route.

If you start west to east (options 1/2 above) you'll typically be moving in the opposite direction of the rest of the people. And Blue Sky Basin is almost never crowded. Have fun!
