Vail Featured as a Conde Nast Traveler Choice Award 2018 Best Ski Resort!

December 7, 2018

Perhaps the winning ticket for 5,289-acre Vail isn’t just that it’s big, but that 3,000 of these acres span the mountain’s seven back bowls.


These have mostly advanced and ungroomed terrain, plus some killer vertical (the Forever trail in Sun Down Bowl, for example, drops a thrilling 1,850 feet). New complimentary guided tours of these gloriously gnarly bowls as well as Blue Sky Basin offer a sweet opportunity for intermediate skiers to level up.

Where to stay: Any of the five resorts ranked among the top 20 in our 2018 Reader’s Choice AwardsHotel Talisa, A Luxury Collection Resort, Vail

Stats: One-day lift tickets at the window start at $159; 31 lifts spanning 195 trails.
