The single largest ski resort on the continent, Vail boasts three distinct mountain areas, each with their own features and fortes, including three terrain parks, seven bowls and 5,289 acres of freeride terrain. At seven miles wide, finding fresh tracks is as easy as finding elbow room. In fact, on an average day, there are only two skiers per acre, and on a busy day, only four! In the resort you'll find world-class accommodations from the top end of luxury to practical condominiums. And for those with travel flexibility, a whole host of affordable last-minute bookings. On the culinary front, the same world-class offerings abound.
