Vail - Information

Resort Information  Vail

Boasting the largest ski mountain in North America, the legendary Back Bowls and an extensive choice of lodging close to the slopes, Vail is undoubtedly one of the world’s leading ski destinations. Vail village is a pedestrian’s resort offering over 200 shops, bars and restaurants to satisfy every appetite from sushi to gourmet dining. It is designed in a Tyrolean style, however the local accents will leave you in no doubt that you are in one of the USA’s favourite winter playgrounds. Bridge Street is the main hub of activity where day or night, there is always something happening. The 645 acres of natural, gladed terrain is nestled more than two miles into the wilderness, but with all the modern amenities. Four high-speed lifts provide access to this unique terrain that’s virtually untouched, except for some grooming among the trees.Vail is one of the few American resorts that compares with European mega-resorts on ski area size. The mountain is large with skiing over three peaks – Two Elk Lodge, Summit and Wildwood. The slopes down to the village are neat, tree-lined and prone to moguls. They are accessed via three lifts from Vail’s 3 areas – Lion’s Head, Golden Peak and Vail Village. Off the back of the mountain lies the famous Back Bowls, and beyond that, the powder bowl of Blue Sky Basin. Snow reliability is very good, with most slopes north facing. On powder mornings the town is wired with anticipation.
