Vail lives up to the best Colorado has to offer. The number of acres far exceeds all other resorts and offers lots of space to get lost. We went during Christmas and it snowed 8 of 10 days. Spring break was sunny but still plenty of snow. We just missed the big spring dump! Blue Sky Basin and the back bowls are the place to be. We've hit them all in Colorado and while there's plenty of great spots none beats Vail. You have to go to Whistler to find more terrain!
