Huge mountain with lots of varied terrain, different types of lifts, various types of dining; skiing, boarding, tubing, ski biking - there's something for everyone. Two lifts have the 'magic carpet', a cumbersome, ineffective mechanism that seems to cause many loading problems (hope they get rid of them!). The village is what makes Vail unique; a sequestered, pedestrian area full... More

I'm from the Northeast and only come out west occasionally. The resort is terrific. There is a ton of terrain for all levels. The bowls on the back party of the mountain are incredible. Definitely worth a visit.

My family has skied in Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, California and all over Colorado...nothing compares to Vail. We have stayed at the resort twice, but on our last trip to Colorado we stayed at Keystone. We took a day trip to Vail and it reminded me how much better Vail is than other resorts. The wide open bowls and trails make... More

Forget about Europe, Aspen or Telluride Como to Vail , manicured mountain , always TOP Quality Expensive lift tickets but you are at the best ski resort of the world If you ski buy the Epic Pass when it comes out , it's a bargain if you want to ski 6+ days in a year

Family of 4 with 2 small children (4,6) did first-time ski school for 3 days. Great experience for the most part...although pricey. Vail ski school for children was good for our kids and everyone learned something including my 4 year old. The Vail ski school for adults was great for my wife. She was very intimidated by the height of... More

Food is pricey, but soups are plentiful and portions are good. Nice views from inside the lodge. Be sure to hydrate as altitude sickness is prevalent. There are water stations in several places.

I was complimentary upgraded. This could be for one, none, or two reasons. I'm gold with Marriott. It's good to be able to use points here. I applied a years worth of business travel earned nights. I think finding a brand and staying loyal is worth it if you can be patient Long term. Marriott has been good to me... More

So Vail resorts has been putting out these pre-booking packages so that you can "save money" by pre-booking. You had better make darn sure that you will absolutely be able to do these dates. We had realized three months prior to our trip that we were going to not be able to make this time. This was well outside of... More
