Even though it is the end of the season and they will close soon, certain runs had great conditions. We were told where to find the best conditions and what areas to avoid. Our three teens had a great time. Very quick customer service at the ticket counter. You might be able to get cheaper tickets in advance online. We... More

Overpriced! But so many runs and ski options for all levels. Would like to see them cater more to Americans than just rich, Latin Americans who flaunt their money here. It's a beautiful place but just ridiculously overpriced even in hotels and restaurants in the worst part of the season with poor ski conditions.

A wonderful place to ski, but completely absurd prices. Unreasonable to expect people to pay $130 for a ski ticket on an off-season ski day.

I have skied here 5 times now and it never disappoints. A vast ski area with wide open runs, often we had the mountainside to ourselves. Snow is great and accompanied by sun in the Spring. If it was not for the expense and the distance, I would ski here every year.

Even during the busy Spring Break period we were able to find runs that we didn't have to share with anyone. The mountain is huge and the snow was great. Move to the Backside, Bowls, and Blue Sky to escape the crowds.

Vail Mountain is an incredible experience. It offers stunning beauty, a ton of variety for all levels of skiers, and a great staff. The people that work this mountain are fantastic- knowledgeable and friendly! The ski school is pricey but fantastic as well!

If you only care about the skiing then ignore this review - there's an incredible variety of terrain - huge back bowls and a great variety of trails on the front of the mountain. But for us a skiing holiday is more than just the skiing - it's also the restaurants on the slopes where you can relax and have... More

Every year between Christmas and New Year's the Vail Mountain Resort is inundated with hoards of tourists that should have just stayed at home. I started coming here in 1984 and the difference is like night and day. If you're looking for a more personalized, more European vacation head over to Beaver Creek instead.
