    Ride with care and respect your ability level. If you don't know where you're going, then the ropes are there for YOU!

    Best route from Lionshead out back on a busy day: 8 to 2 to Ouzo to 7 to Ricky's.

    "For amazing views stop half-way down the Sun Down Bowl in Vail, just as you enter the run Seldom." - Lindsey Vonn, Olympic Gold Medalist, US Ski Team

    To avoid the catwalk hell on a snowboard, drop Headwall or Slot & utilize Chair 17. Fastest load times, slowest ride & the best looking lift ops at Vail.

    Hit up Mongolia bowls if there's snow. Worth it despite the extra t-bar

    Best snow in the back bowl is the trees past the catwalk after China bowl.

    DEATH. Do not enter if you're overconfident and think that you're an expert when you're NOT or you'll get stuck in there for over an hour and end up sliding down like a slide (posting for a friend).

    Get to chair 5 on a powder first before the lines start.
