Vail is not only Colorado’s largest ski resort, this mega mountain also boasts one of the world’s largest ski areas with more than 5,289 acres of diverse terrain to explore, including Vail’s 7 legendary back bowls.
If you are looking to experience the ultimate in ski resorts then you have found it – pedestrian-friendly European style villages, picturesque mountains and luxurious accommodation from boutique hotels to private condos and homes in a choice of locations.
Choose to stay in the heart of Vail Village with an idyllic location just steps away from the gondola or at Lionshead Village with lodging right by the Eagle Bahn gondola.
To make the most of your ski trip, Snowscene recommends taking advantage of the guided mountain tours which are complimentary to lift ticket holders and the perfect way to get to know Vail Resort and all it has to offer.
Of an afternoon you can stroll the heated cobblestone streets and explore the high-end boutiques, unique gift stores and art galleries, then finish the day with ice skating in Vail Village or Lionshead Village. The convenient courtesy shuttle connects both villages so no matter where you are staying you can explore both villages and the après ski hot spots.
After skiing you can continue to play in the afternoon and well into the night at Adventure Ridge which is a family favourite. Choose from kids snowmobiles, snow tubing, ski bikes, the alpine coaster, snow shoeing and more.
Snowscene’s favourite experience is Game Creek Restaurant – we recommend going at sunset for an intimate mid mountain dining experience overlooking the beautiful Game Creek Bowl. This breathtaking European chalet style restaurant is only accessible by snow cat which tops up the must do experience.
Vail truly is something magical – it is truly like nothing on earth.
