I have the Epic season pass. Obviously lack of running chairlifts especially in the week ends. Happened to wait 30 minutes on the line for a chair lift / gondola. Some of the chairlifts are very old, slow, and not probably not upgraded for decades, on the edge of being scary. Vail ski resorts made $ 300 million of profit, Time to upgrade ! Would be nice if operating hours were extended like in Keystone (night skiing)... Full Review

Several collisions witnesses at Park city Ski resort and at the Canyons this week. Careless skiing and snowboarding causing these potentially criminal offenses. SLOW DOWN ALL, share the trails and be aware!!!! ... Full Review

Beware don’t go! Too crowded and out of control snowborders and skiers that will take you out from behind! Unsafe place for you and your family. Vail doesn’t care about safety, just making and recouping their losses. ... Full Review

The ski area is pretty weak with a lot of lame blues and greens. The park sucks bigly and the price of lift tickets is absurd. Not a bad place for beginners but the better you are the less fulfilling your experience will be. ... Full Review

Vail resorts closed their mountains due to COVID-19, and they are not doing the right thing by their customers. They should have immediately reimbursed those folks that did not receive their trips or were unable to use their EPIC passes due to cancellation. If you bought travel insurance, they refer you to the insurance company. True to form, the insurance company is trying to claim that COVID-19 is not a "NATURAL DISASTER." Then, what is it? The mountains were closed down even before we closed down the country. Breckenridge and Vail were overcome with the virus. They had to close it. That certainly makes it a natural disaster. Why aren't they doing what is right? ... Full Review

You would think that Vail ski resort could handle snow and be open for it. Spent two days there with horrible lines and most of the mountain closed due to snow. Really an expensive bad experience.... Full Review
