The hiking and mountain biking trails are amongst the best in Colorado. Skiing the back bowls is a must in Winter.
Hike the Berry Picker trail (the name is deceiving) and ride the gondola down for free.
Also, be prepared to spend some money
Expansive terrain that seems never ending. Another piece of heaven
The overwhelming population of rich skiers are not very fond of snowboarders.
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.
Blue Sky basin will usually be empty - even on busy days.
Looking for a great way to to and from anywhere in the Vail/Avon area? Check out Uber for a safe and friendly experience. Your first ride (up to a $20 fare) is free. http://bit.ly/uberrider.
Blue sky basin + back bowls! when close. Ski front side.
Bowls, double diamonds and snow bunnies are more prevalent here than any other mountain in Colorado.
Ski the China Bowl or blue sky basin. Varied terrain for intermediate to expert skiers and wonderful views.
The best place to ski in North America?, hell yeh. Bigger than any other mountain and lot of bowels to explore.
Get early.. Mountain closes at 4pm
The snow is looking good.
Back bowls hands down!
Ski Blue Sky Basin!
Eagles nest for lunch. Cheaper and fewer children. Children ruin everything.
Try the skiing!
Do NOT eat the yellow snow!
Fastest way to backbowls & blue sky basin .... Start at gold peAk! 16 to 10 to 14. You'll sAve at least 20 min v vail village or lions head start. But DONT share my secret! Think snow!
Let's go go
best snow in Colorado
Try skiing in UT(Alta/Snowbird), MT(Big Sky), WY(Jackson), CA(Mammoth/Kirkwood/Tahoe) and Canada(Whistler/Revelstoke), they are all better than anything Vail or Colorado has to offer.
Free grill your own meat at the top on lift 4 outside the hut. Put a streak in your pocket and enjoy an amazing lunch on top of the mountain!
It will take you at least 2 days to cover all the trails. Awesome runs.
like nothing else on earth
Try the snow.
Gruss di! E mag. Es erinnert mich irgendwie an der Grosse Alpen. And the area below stunning,.yeah around the village it sorta reminds me of the Algou region of Bavaria. @kurtwvs
I'm the mayor!!!
Back Bowls, Back Bowls, Back Bowls are sooo sweet for the entire family. Steeps on the sides, groomed runs down the middle. Perfect!
Amazing resort! Huge & pretty busy, but def a must try if you're visiting!
Stay off the front side if the snow is good enough to be in the Bowls and Blue sky. Ouzo glade, Never, Seldom, All of Blue Sky on powder days.
the perfect mountain
We like the Earl's Bowl back in the Blue Sky Basin. Trust us on this.
It takes a solid hour but on a powder you want to get to Blue Sky Basin in the trees off Pete's Chair.
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.
"My favorite run here at Vail is Riva Ridge.” - Lindsey Vonn, Olympic Gold Medalist, US Ski Team
"My own personal favorite run at Vail is Red Square, but the most challenging here has to be Mudslide. Can you handle it?" - Abby Ghent, US Ski Team
Ahhh! Never seen this before!
Can't wait till go back to states for much more fun
Tourists: Stay away until these shitty conditions get covered by some real snow. Otherwise you're chances of ending up in the VVMC ER will be high.
Go to other mountains. There's no snow in here.
"Top beat the crowds tip: Try uploading via Chair 8 in Lionshead. Ski over to Chair 2 and then into Game Creek via Ouzo. It'll get you to the top fast and in style!" - Lindsey Vonn, US Ski Team
"Want a challenge? Try skiing Forever in Sun Up Bowl. Non-stop if your thighs can handle it!" - Lindsey Vonn, Olympic Gold Medalist, US Ski Team
epic season pass only available until 11/29! For the average skier and those travelling with families, Vail is the perfect choice!
