At street level the entrance hall leads into the large lounge with seating around the log fire. There is a flat screen TV, DVD, CD player & iPod docking system. The dining area is along the south facing windows. There is access from the dining room to the deck on the south side where the outside 5 person hot tub is situated. Off the entrance hall is a wc with wash basin for use by guests or visitors. The house slopes away from the street so the lower floor rooms have an open southerly aspect.

With a great snow record and Keystone, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin all being available on the same pass, skiing here is pretty good. The skiing in Vail itself is largely geared towards intermediates, but beginners also have plenty of nursery slopes and some brilliant ski schools. Advanced skiers will love the 'Back Bowls' for powder. Freestyle skiers and boarders are spoilt for choice with snowparks, half-pipes and their own maps detailing the best spots. Beaver Creek, linked to Vail by bus, provides for the more advanced skier, with some superb black runs. As with most North American resorts, the lifts and convenience are exceptional, with queues being a rarity.
Vail ski resort
Vail itself is large, offering a wide range of restaurants, shops and nightlife. Vail also has plenty of off-snow activities, with the free bus making these very accessible. It can, however, be 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. Denver, the nearest international airport is 2½ hours away. Warning: be wary of altitude sickness mixed with jet lag!
