You came for the snow and the scenery. Now enjoy them to their fullest with the aid of these testimonials from Vail Valley diehards:
1► North America, Europe, South America, Asia, Africa, Australia—the world seems to converge in the vail valley. (If only Antarctica had a resort-going population—no offense, penguins—it’d surely be a clean continental sweep.) For those who enjoy the varied customs and perspectives of our fellow citizens around the globe, this is the place to be each winter. You never know whom you might meet.
2► With conditions that are often dry, sunny, and still, you’ll discover that 10 degrees is skiable after all.
3► The thrill of bump-skiing on Look Ma is arguably surpassed only by watching bump-skiing from Chair 3 on Look Ma.
4► This is a great place to get your just desserts. Among literally dozens of delectable options throughout the area, Charles’s Hot Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake with Myers’s Rum Sauce and Whipped Cream (pictured) has been served over a million times—at Juniper in Edwards and previously at Sweet Basil in Vail Village—according to the estimate of its creator, chef Charles Broschinsky.
