Vail, Colorado: Home to Delicious Gourmet and Amazing Skiing Experience

            Vail, Colorado is a municipality in the United States that was established and built as the base village to the famous Vail Ski Resort. It is the second largest ski mountain in North America after the also well-known Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort. The municipality has an average elevation of 8150 ft above sea level with a total area of 12 square kilometres. A creek flows from east to west at the middle of the town known as Gore Creek. The town is also surrounded by the White River National Forest. On the other hand, the Vail ski Resort is leased from the US Forest service and you can see the Mount of the Holy Cross from the Vail Mountain.

Vail Ski Resort

Vail, Colorado is home to the famous Vail Ski Resort. The resort includes the Vail Mountain which is the largest single mountain in the United States. It has an area of 2140 hectares and features gladed terrain in Blue Sky Basin and seven bowls. The resort was opened in 1962 and is currently operated and owned by Vail Ski Resorts. Vail Mountain has three sections: the Back Bowls, Front-Side, and Blue Sky Basin.

Most of the mountain is wide open terrain with all types of trails. Vail Village is designed with Bavarian styles including the pedestrian streets. Unlike other ski towns in Colorado, the town was built when the resort was opened. Other towns such as Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, and Aspen existed as mining towns before the ski resorts were established.

Skiing in Vail

Vail, Colorado is a great place to ski with your friends and family. Since it is a vast ski area, you should arrange a meeting place with your group in case you get separated. Vail Mountain is huge! You can ski for a week and still be discovering new trails and pitches. Keep in mind that locals call the lifts not by their names, but by their numbers. If you want to ski with them, you should do the same.

Another suggestion is to take the Cascade Way back to the hotel after you finish skiing. That is if you are staying at the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa. You will surely enjoy the whoop and significant skiing in the Alps as you pass through curves, twists, and ducks the bridges along the way.

Dinning in Vail
