Food is pricey, but soups are plentiful and portions are good. Nice views from inside the lodge. Be sure to hydrate as altitude sickness is prevalent. There are water stations in several places.

I was complimentary upgraded. This could be for one, none, or two reasons. I'm gold with Marriott. It's good to be able to use points here. I applied a years worth of business travel earned nights.

So Vail resorts has been putting out these pre-booking packages so that you can "save money" by pre-booking. You had better make darn sure that you will absolutely be able to do these dates. We had realized three months prior to our trip that we were going to not be able to make this time. This was well outside of... More

This place is a magnet for skiers and snowboarders across the globe. My family has three very avid skiers who skied at Vail 3 of... More

Vail is the perfect place for ski trips. Whether you're a group of adults or a family with children this place can fulfill all your needs. Staff on the mountain are friendly and helpful. Ski school can accommodate whatever you want. Not inexpensive but so well worth the money. The mountain can fulfill any skiers level of challenge. Great grooming... More
