    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The mountain is comprised of three bases, and each one has a different feel; because of this, you can enjoy three mountain vacations in one! Read more · July 11, 2013

    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.

    Chris Szaraz · March 9, 2013

    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!

    Taylor Heald · February 28, 2013

    It will take you at least 2 days to cover all the trails. Awesome runs.

    Back Bowls, Back Bowls, Back Bowls are sooo sweet for the entire family. Steeps on the sides, groomed runs down the middle. Perfect!

    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.

    We like the Earl's Bowl back in the Blue Sky Basin. Trust us on this.

  • Chad W.

    It takes a solid hour but on a powder you want to get to Blue Sky Basin in the trees off Pete's Chair.

    Chad Williams · January 31, 2012
  • Colorado

    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.

    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.
