“Skiing doesn't get any better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

You have to experience the vast terrain. It would take a whole season to explore the front and back bowls. Plenty of variety for all to enjoy....Words don't quite do the experience justice.

“Sooooo pretty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We visited Vail for a day trip with friends that live in Colorado, wow... the prettiest place in America! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. It was a wet day and that didn't take away from the sheer beauty and the fresh air. The quant shops, the pretty waterfalls, streams and gardens. The mountains were spectacular!

“Skiing Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's Vail, they groom the runs better than most, gondola assistants actually assist. Skiing is among the best even with entire area not yet open.

“Great time!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Don't waste your time or money at other Colorado ski areas. Excellent ski area with first rate amenities at a value price. Excellent guest service as well. We live in Colorado Springs and headed to Steamboat later year at this time. Needless to say, we will we not be driving there again.

Amazing views. The concierge at the Sonnenalp was very helpful in providing trail maps and helping us pick a trail.
