Fantastic – We just returned (48 of us) from 3 perfect days
at Vail. (DEC 13 - 15) the SNOW, SUN AND WEATHER were all just right. As the trip leder,
it made me look good.
What a great place. It is their 40th year so that
may have helped to the outstanding service by
everyone associated with the area.
VAIL IS AWESOME – I love Col. for skiing. I have been to vail several times since I was a little kid. What I loved best it that I was able to take a bus from my condo there. I think that you get the best of both worlds there. They have awesome black slopes, and awesome green slopes. CHECK IT OUT!
Thin Vail – ove Aspen to I-70, lose the town, the pitch, add the bowls, keep the expense and clientele, pay for limited parking and what's left??? Vail. True experts will find limited skiing on the main mountain. There are some steep pitches but many of the other expert trails come disguised as intermediate trails with bumps. Many intermediate trails are intersected by cat tracks. Remove the cat tracks and theres limited true novice terrain. For an expansive area that has everything for everybody, its more like an expensive mountain that lacks something for everybody But the Back Bowls make it all worth while Sort of.
You also get Beaver Creek on the same ticket, with some great upper end and good intermediate skiing. However, when you add the good and the bad you get a wash.
too crowded – vail is a snakey, spread out resort jamed between mountain and freeway. It suffers in my opinion from being just too close to Denver. Too crowded and too spread out- that might seem contradictory unless you've been there
Vail the Greatest Ski Vacation – The best place to begin to ski, because of its beauty, and there is always pleanty of snow.
Ferris once said... – ...If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. Ferris Bueler wasn't talking about a ski vacation, but he might as well have. If you have any opportunity to check out one of North America's gems, do so. The skiing is out of this world. The people are friendly, and catching a beer buzz at altitude is an experience that you won't soon forget. If you have a friend in the area or even one of the Johnny Frontrange weekend warriors, get on their good side and see the real Vail mountain that expands beyond the front side.
Vail has it all!! – Vail is #1 for skiing/boarding, restaurants and bars! The night life it great, and the people are so kick backm and it's so beautiful!!
Vail is Mecca to skiers!! – The best ski area in the world. Bar none. If only the idiots didn't burn down the original Two Elks lodge, I would have absolutely nothing bad to say.
what went wrong – To much rude people. Was not very thrilled with staff and to much tourist like me their and their greens and blacks really sucked, I personally think peolpe should go to COPPER MOUNTAIN OR WINTER PARK to get their moneys worth
Vail! Where the skiers ski!! – Vail is where the skiers ski. No matter what time of the year or day, there are never lines on the mountain. Vail is HUGE and there is plenty of room for everyone, wether you are a beginner or expert. Blue Sky Basin is almost a ski resort of it's own! Some critisize the price of Vail, but I am more than willing to pay that much to ski their awsome terrain and not have to wait in line. As the saying goes, "You get what you pay for." You definately get a lot from Vail. After skiing, its off to the lovely village for some warm hot chocalate and steak dinners!
