Vail

This iconic ski area is the third largest single ski resort in the United States and the largest in Colorado. Founded in 1962, there wasn’t much else going on in the Vail Valley and the town wasn’t incorporated until 1966. When it did start to grow, Vail Village was designed to look like a Bavarian village with wide walking streets and easy access to the slopes. The mountain itself is divided into three key areas, the Front Side, Blue Sky Basin, and the Back Bowls. There are 31 lifts (including two gondolas), that access over 5,000 acres of skiable terrain. Longways, the ski area spans nearly seven miles. The longest single run, Riva Ridge, stretches four miles. There are two terrain parks and runs for first time skiers to advanced cliff jumping tucked away.
