Skiing in Vail

Vail calls itself “North America’s favourite ski resort.” That’s a grand, subjective statement we can’t confirm, but there is one thing we do know for sure: it’s America’s biggest ski resort. Vail’s got over 5,289 ski-able acres and 7 legendary back bowls spanning 7 miles. Free buses and heated walkways connect its four distinct base areas.

Vail is enormous and as a result, it offers skiing on a scale you just won’t find anywhere else.

You can choose from 193 trails: a fifth for beginners, a third for intermediates, and a half for advanced skiers.

Most easy & intermediate terrain is made of wide-open, north-facing trails. Experts will gravitate toward the legendary Back Bowls—which feature dozens of black trails and off-piste routes. Keep in mind that intermediates can safely handle some runs in the Back Bowls.

An insider’s tip: start in the east at the Blue Sky Basin and then head westward throughout the day. This tends to be the opposite direction of the crowd, so you’ll enjoy it more, and you might even find some untracked snow in the Sun Up Bowl near Yonder and Over Yonder trails.

Facilities in Vail

Vail is huge, which means it has a huge variety. From food to lodging to nightlife and beyond, chances are Vail has you covered.

restaurant icon

Vail is known to be a town for foodies, so it has a whole lot of acclaimed, refined restaurants that won’t disappoint you. Larkspur is a favourite and their menu changes weekly. On the lower end, there are a number of pizza spots and Mexican restaurants. The favourite dish at Bart and Yeti’s is Mr Bill’s nachos, which is made with homemade pineapple salsa. Notable night spots include Garfinkel’s (which features a shot wheel which determines which shot you’ll be drinking) and The Red Lion (an iconic regional institution everyone is encouraged to visit at least once while in Vail).

accommodation icon

Vail offers numerous hotels to accommodate your stay. On the lower-end, the Holiday Inn Apex Vail is a favourite. It’s a bit further from the action, but there’s a free bus to Vail’s other areas and you won’t have to pay for parking (which usually costs $25/day). On the higher end, The Lodge at Vail is located right in the middle of Vail Village (adjacent to the lifts) and offers nice touches like afternoon hot chocolate in the lobby.

ski school icon

The Vail Snowsports School is one of the best ski schools in the world, and it offers group lessons and private lessons depending on your preference. Perks like professional, on-mountain photography and dedicated lift access will make your time learning skiing quick and breezy!

Airport transfer types to suit all budgets



Share the vehicle with other passengers with similar flights & destinations.


One of the most cost effective and efficient ways of getting to the resort.



Similar to a shared transfer, except this runs to a set timetable, so you're required to book a service that works for your flight times.


Generally not door-to-door but cheaper.



Book a driver and vehicle for your sole use.


No sharing with others, no waiting at the airport and a direct door-to-door service, with no additional stops en route.



Similar to a private transfer the only difference is that it is using a larger vehicle.


Perfect for larger groups wanting to travel together.


Exec & Limousine

Enjoy vehicles such as a top-of-the-range Mercedes minivan or an S-Class Mercedes limousine.
