Vail Skiing & Snowboarding

Vail Skiing and SnowboardingIf you're trying to choose the perfect Colorado ski vacation destination, you probably have considered Vail.  With the largest and most well-known Colorado ski resort located right in town, it's hard to argue with the advantages of staying in Vail.  Vail snowboarding and skiing is the perfect winter vacation.

Slopeside lodging is available at locations across the resort, and the base villages offer numerous ski and snowboard rental shops and stores that sell both equipment and clothing, so the ski or snowboard enthusiast can spend more time enjoying Vail's deep snow and famous back bowls.

Make your Vail skiing Colorado wide. For those seeking extra variety, Vail is conveniently located within an hour's drive of seven other ski areas and resorts, including Beaver Creek, Keystone and Breckenridge, all of which can be purchased on the same pass or lift ticket packages as Vail, and Copper Mountain just on the other side of Vail Pass.

For those seeking to take their on-mountain skills to the next level, group or private lessons can be purchased.  Spend multiple days learning new techniques or take a short refresher lesson at the start of your vacation before setting out on your own to explore the trails.

Conditions can vary depending on when you choose to visit.  Early in December, you'll probably have limited terrain options, but you'll beat the crowds, which means a fun, laidback ski trip.  Once the holiday gets under way, you'll find great deals and tons of events going on, as well as more open terrain.  

January can be a hidden gem - while the weather is at its coldest, there's usually tons of fresh snow and limited crowds which means it'll be even easier to enjoy Vail skiing.  February and March provide the most snow and the best weather so most families opt to visit during those months.  They are also the best months to check out local attractions and try other activities in the area.  An April trip will be once again limited in terrain, but it's hard to beat those warm spring days on the slopes!
