Vail, Colorado

Vail, the largest single ski area in the USA with over 4000 acres of skiable terrain, and the most high-speed detachable quads on one mountain in the world, Vail markets itself as 'America's favorite resort.' It is certainly regarded by many as one of the world's top five all-around ski resorts. Vail's ski area is legendary.

Vail Ski Resort is the largest single resort in the United States with 5,289 acres of the most diverse and expansive skiing in the world, blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year. Vail Mountain is accessed by three base areas: Lionshead, Vail Village, and Golden Peak.

Stretching for 7 miles (11km) and served by 25 lifts, eight of them express quads; it has over 120 named trails. Expert skiers and powder fanatics have plenty of challenging terrain on Vail's Front side as well as the seven legendary 'Back Bowls.' For intermediates there's a huge variety of groomed cruising runs. There are numerous beginners slow skiing areas around the mountains and special family skiing areas. The longest run is from Flap Jack to Riva Ridge, a total of 4.5 miles (7.3km). The Front side terrain is unusually well balanced with almost a third of the skiing for each category of skier. The resort receives an average of 27 feet of light powder snow each year.
Coveted as one of the largest ski resorts in the world with more than 5,200 acres of skiable terrain seven legendary Back Bowls spanning seven miles, and the most groomed terrain on the planet, Vail has been an extraordinary winter vacation destination for passionate skiers and snowboarders or more than 50 years.  It is home to world class athletes during the U.S. Ski Team early-season training session and has been home to numerous world championship races.
