Hailed as one of America's most exclusive ski resorts, Vail delivers luxurious world-class skiing in epic proportions. Renowned for 20 km2 of deep powder stretching over the Rocky Mountains, speedy lift systems whisk you up the mountain to immaculately groomed runs of every variety. Newbies can master their snow ploughs in dedicated learner zones, while intermediates enjoy cruising wide, uncrowded blues and vast powder bowls, and black run fanatics blast through unpisted forests and mogul fields. Hitting the slopes on a board? Super smooth runs and superb snow parks make this a snowboarders' paradise, too.
