Full review

Vail is amazing. There is only one flaw at Vail, parking we parked in the Donovan lot because it was free. the bus was very crowded and we had to stand I fell once the other time another woman caught me. The bus drops you at the base of the Cascade village lift. So we took that up and we headed straight for the Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin here is what it was like. Back Bowls: deep powder not crowded at all, hard to ski in. Blue Sky Basin: busy packed powder great runs threw the trees. We did not eat at Vail but I here in other reviews that Wildwoods and Buffalo's are the best.They also say that Two Elk lodge gets busy. The front side of Vail was great there was barely any body on the front side. The front has everything, greens,blues,blacks,doubleblacks,steeps,catwalks,and moguls. Vail is my third favorite all time(behind Breck and Big Sky)
