What to say that hasn't already been said in the other 104 reviews? Not really anything I can except, That if you are looking for the biggest most traveled best resort in all on the United States, its VAIL. It houses the most people over a ski season every year for 15 out of the last 17 years. some 1.5 million people enjoy Vail each year. I personally have only been there once, but loves every minute of it. The back bowls are wide open and even a intermediate rider can enjoy them. The lift ticket price ($100+) and cost of the lodging is the only downfall. Of course if you want to ride on the biggest mountain you should expect to pay! Go there once if you are anywhere within a 1000 mile trip. You wont be disappointed!
