53% Expert Terrain | 7 Legendary Back Bowls | 5 Time Host Burton US Open

Vail, CO | There’s nothing quite like carving through their famed fields of powder after a big snowfall or mashed potatoes on a bluebird spring afternoon. The vistas take your breath away and you will want to take lots of photos. At first, just the site of the back side of Vail can be overwhelming. The vastness might be intimidating but don’t let that stop you. And don’t feel like you will hold back your friends.
One of the Vail’s best qualities is that skiers of different skill levels can ski together all day and be very happy. Vail has long been the most popular ski resort in North America, for good reason, and was also one of the first in the country to embrace snowboarders, retaining this feel of inclusivity three decades later. For many years it held the lofty title of “largest single mountain ski resort,” a stat arguably wrested away in the past two years only by combining other major ski resorts into one. Without having to snap up any neighbors, Vail still retains a stunning amount of skiing, nearly 200 trails across 5,289 “developed” acres served by more than 30 well connected and efficient lifts. Vail has all the powder skiing you could want, and the full assortment of black steeps, glades and bumps along with some double blacks.
