Vail, Colorado

Sitting at the base of Vail Mountain, Vail may be small in stature but it’s known around the world for it’s incredible alpine skiing.

The terrain on Vail Mountain varies greatly, with steeps, glades, and bumps along many of the more advanced runs. This combination makes Vail a great family ski resort in Colorado.

The resort spans two sides of the mountain – the front side consists of smooth, well-maintained slopes while the legendary Back Bowls offer up powder fields to the tune of 3,017 acres.

The resort village is spread across three primary areas: Golden Peak, Vail Village, and Lionshead.
