Why Choose Vail over the other Colorado Ski Resorts

Vail, Colorado is one of the most popular ski destinations in the country, with visitors coming from all over the world, and is the perfect place for a family vacation. With its unique climate–which provides perfect skiing conditions, ski deals, Vail hotels and lots of fun winter activities, there’s nothing quite like it.

With over 5,000 total acres of ski terrain, Vail Mountain is the biggest ski mountain in the United States. It has a vertical rise of 3.450 feet and 193 trails. Weather conditions make Vail the perfect place for a family vacation of skiing, with an average of 200 inches of snow per year and 300 days of sunshine. The temperature hardly ever rises above freezing from December to February. Vail Mountain has three terrain parks with natural and man-made features including ramps, jumps, pipes–and even cliffs and steep slopes for every level of expertise. For ski lessons, the ski and snowboard school has hundreds of expert instructors who not only teach adults, but have a special program for children and teens to get them ready for the slopes as well.

Since the city of Vail was built around the resort, rather than the resort around the city–it truly has a vacation feel to it. Vail Village offers shopping and world class restaurants and the choices of Vail hotels are numerous and available in eight different areas of town while still being easily accessible to the mountain. In addition to skiing, there are a variety of special activities offered in the winter such as Snowdaze and Holidaze in December and the Teva Mountain Games in February. After a day on the slopes, for those who enjoy the nightlife there are plenty of bars with dancing and live music for great entertainment. For more family-friendly activities, Adventure Ridge offers ski bikes, snowmobile tracks, tubing lanes and a gigantic snow park which can be experienced from the afternoon until well into the evening.

For those who are looking for an experience like no other, Vail Colorado is the ideal spot for the ultimate in skiing and all kinds of winter fun. Plan early to get in on the best activities and ski deals.
