    I've explored a number of the big name ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains and Vail is at the top of the list. Spectacular sights. A one of a kind experience for skiers and boarders of all levels.

    Ride the gondola to the top of the ski mountain and walk down amid colorful wildflowers, or for a more heart-pumping adventure, hike up the mountain and catch the gondola back down.

    Try parking near the City Market and Safeway along the frontage road before you go and shell out $25 to the Town of Vail for garage parking. There aren't many spots so get there early.
