Skiing Holidays in Vail

A ski holiday in Vail lets you explore one of the real big boys in North America. Vail/Beaver Creek's ski area is in fact the biggest in the US. One of the major delights of Vail skiing holidays is that Vail has one of the region's best snow records. Equally enjoyable is the choice of skiing offered by Keystone, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin, all available on the same pass. Skiing holidays in Vail do, however, share Aspen's exclusivity tag, having held the World Championships in 1999.
Vail Ski Holidays: The Skiing
The skiing is largely for intermediates, but beginners are spoilt with nursery slopes and brilliant ski schools. Advanced ski holiday makers will love the 'Back Bowls' for powder. Boarders are well served in Vail with specialist parks, half-pipes and their own maps detailing the best spots. Beaver Creek is equally varied, with some superb black trails as a real highlight. The two are linked by bus. As with most North American resorts, the lifts and convenience in Vail are exceptional, with queues a rarity. Some superb cross-country skiing is also available.

Vail Ski Holidays: Off the Snow
The resort of Vail is vast and expensive, with prices increasing as you get closer to the lifts. There are a wide range of eateries, some of excellent value, as well as shops and nightlife to excite non-skiers. Vail also has plenty of off-snow activities to complement you ski holiday, with the free bus making these very accessible. Children are well catered for on and off the snow. Denver, the nearest international airport is 2½ hours away. You must also be wary of altitude sickness.

Overall, ski holidays in Vail are a great experience, with the added bonus of easy access to other resorts and terrain.
