Visitor Reviews of Vail

Sandy from United Kingdom writes:

Vail is an excellent resort for beginners, intermediates and families. There is nothing particularly steep here and all double diamonds consist of large mogul fields with little variation. The rumour is to find a local to explore the good stuff but you miss the difficult terrain that's easy to access in European and other American resorts. Families and groups dominate the terrain parks looking for a cheap thrill, showing no to little etiquette that is required and powder days last for a few hours so be up early in the morning for your first (and probably only) fresh track. The snow is incredibly light and dry but think I'd choose BC or Utah. Disneyland Vail is open for business.
