Three friends and I came for the weekend in late March. I would love to have come earlier in the year and stay longer than a weekend, but it wasn't doable. A return trip is something I definitely have on my mind.

Double Diamond, Skibase, Vail Sports are all within 100 yards of the gondola. But remember - this is Vail; it ain't cheap! Look online and in the village booklets for offers.
