As the title hints, Vail is expensive. With day ticket prices approaching $200, and a surfeit of overpriced restaurants in town, one has to wonder, why Vail? Well, the best sometimes costs more. But, knowing the ins and outs, it really is not expensive. Vail in on the Disneyland model: high daily price, but really low annual pass. An annual... More

I used to ski at Aspen years and years ago, but I had never seen powder like this. It was a foot and a half and insane. I was totally, completely out of shape for it. Whichever quad muscles in my legs were screaming from leaning back, but it was a one of a kind condition. I fell numerous times... More

While we previously only skied in Aspen and at Snowmass, this trip was a treat. We stayed at a friend's condo at the Ritz and could not get over the utter convenience of everything. Great bus service to take you all over, to the lift, to the shops, to the restaraunts or even the Steadman clinic should one suffer a... More

We have just spent an awesome 10 days, surrounded by fabulous scenery, excellent skiing terrain (5000 acres was open) and mountain facilities and superb American customer service. Opportunities to learn the art of powder skiing thanks to a huge dump! Blue sky basin was our favourite place on the mountain and Wildwood for lunch (delicious BBQ sauce)! Game Creek Lodge... More

I appreciate the Skiing in Vail is fabulous but the whole place uses that as an excuse for extortion on a grand scale. $30 for an inedible kids burger with French fries on the mountain is the best example. For the people that flock here I assure you there is great Skiing, real ambience (not a Disney town) and good... More
