“Vail!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

A great ski mountain. The village shops at the base are a bit pricey but hey it's Vail. Some local "regular" people places too....blue moose pizza is one of them. I ski moguls so the front side is where I prefer. Most people head towards the back to ski but it takes forever to get there. The frontside is where there is less people and lots of challenging terrain!!!

“Go on up the extra mile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We took the gondola up to the 2 mile high mark and hiked down.
There is a great BBQ up top for lunch before setting off down The Berry Picker trail which is for hiking only so you don't have to worry about mountain bikes. It takes about 2 hrs and is easy to moderate in challenge. Weather for us was perfect and views outstanding with the Aspens just turning golden.

“Surprisingly lots to do up there during summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Took the jeep ride attraction across the peaks of the mountains and got a lot of interesting facts about the Vail resort, the mountains, and the history of the area. What amazing views! Went up there around sunset. The gondola ride to the top also provided great views. Food prices in the restaurant were a little high but the food offered outside was reasonable and there was a band to entertain us as well. Definitely worth the trip. If you are into mountain biking or hiking, also definitely worth it.

“Best skiing in Colorado!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

My favorite ski resort in Colorado! Tons of incredible terrain, lots of great lifts and gondolas, and the lines don't seem as long as they do at some of the other Colorado resorts.
