Famous worldwide as North America’s top ski resort, Vail is an extraordinary winter vacation destination. When it comes to skiing, there is no comparison. The endless terrain and incredible scenery that spans almost 5,289 acres is the backdrop for one of the most enjoyable ski vacations you could imagine. Vail's seven wonders, the legendary Back Bowls, were blanketed last year with more than thirty-five feet of powder! The newest expansion of Blue Sky Basin offers even more for skiers and riders to explore. Whether you're looking for endless deep powder, wide open runs, or just a place to play and enjoy this world-renowned Rocky Mountain playground in the sun, you'll find it all right here in Vail. As the sun sets, Vail's delightful Tyrolean-styled pedestrian village comes alive and will entice you with an outstanding selection of wonderful restaurants, charming boutiques, and intimate bistros.
