The snow was decent though suffering from a heat wave but I wont hold that against them. My only real issue is the price. I nearly went to another mountain but that was the same price for half the mountain. Meanwhile you are charging nearly the same rates as Zermatt for 18% of the mountain. You have employees doing unnecessary work further wasting money. One person is physically scanning passes when most places use a RFID turnstyle while another employee is holding the chair to steady it. That is on top of having someone sit in the booth for emergency which makes sense. Terrain park was decent, food was overpriced. Staff was cheerful. You're numbered gate for rentals is annoying as well, making me move to multiple stalls is dumb when you could have one person getting me squared away. ... Full Review

Disappointed, wanted to get a gift card, order it over the phone but charge a fee of $4.95 to do that. Seems wrong. We all know it doesn't cost that to mail a gift card. ... Full Review

Skiing and snowboarding here for 40 years. Vail just isn't making the snow that the previous owners did. Sold a ton of season passes and not opening lifts and terrain. Very disappointed.... Full Review

Horrible parking situation and they are the cheapest people you’ll meet. They don’t groom any trails and the parking lot is a disaster. They didn’t even plow or salt on a holiday weekend. It was laughable how bad this place was... Full Review

Vail resorts has turned a once thriving community mountain into a living Purgatory, filled with over 1+ hour lift lines, trails that remind me of an overcrowded interstate highway during rush hour, and to exit the parking lot, almost 2 hours due To the fact they only have one major exit. On weekdays it’s a great experience with short lines, but last weekends 1 hour lines for the bunny slopes and almost 1.5 for the summit, one can conclude that Vail knows they need to do something, and yet they don’t every year. I assume as well this isn’t the first season where they had this debacle. They’ve sold a record number of epic passes this year just to have a plethora of people flood the mountains on the weekends. ... Full Review

For those who can ski midweek, the mountain is open with limited lifts and limited trails open. d LIFT that goes to mid station is always closed so either you lower short trails or ski from the top, with only belt parkway for intermediates. Midweek is sometimes packed. Weekends are always packed and more trails are open. The MAJOR problem is that Vail does not cover over crusted/icy trails with fresh snow to give a layer of snow to ski on. YOU need to ski early and plan on leaving early when existing snow is skied/snowboarded off. There are too many people flying down the slopes, coming to close to skiers (forget 6 feet social distancing on slopes!), and trails that are simply not maintained that crap out by 11 am. There hasn't been any snowmaking for over 1 month, and groomers are spreading around icy chunks. When it gets warmer the slopes are slushy, the groomers are out early, and by morning everything is frozen cordouroy that is hard to maneuver. The registration system locks passholders out of weekends and dining indoors. the scanners are annoying pointing scanners that look like guns in you face numerous times. Concerned children are getting accustomed to getting "shot" with scanners looking like guns. ... Full Review

Hunter is potentially a great mountain as it has adequate expert terrain but mid-week Hunter West is rarely open this year. Social distancing has been good but today they were loading 3 unrelated parties on the lift - too close for my comfort and not in accord with their own guidelines. Vail Corp. you need to do a better job or you will loose those of us who have been faithful for many years. I miss the Slutzky family management - much better snow making and more serious grooming.... Full Review

First ski trip during COVID. Good conditions on the beginner and intermediate runs, particularly Broadway/42 Avenue, and Kennedy/Gun Hill. Beltway, the only blue from the top, was too crowded, and had a couple of icy patches. West side was more hardpack. Line operators vigilant as the mask police...violators less frequent than at my gym, but inevitable. I don't like the rules, but I follow them. System for admitting people into lodge to eat should be more efficient...long line of people to enter @ 11:30 (all had reservations), didn't even get to the door until 11:45. Plenty of empty tables; they just need a quicker way of checking people in. RFID to get on lifts was great; people were scanned from 10 feet away, and well before getting on the lift. Skiers were really good about alternating in the lines.Main problem was the merging happened 3 times in small area. Keeping separate on the chairs did make the lines move slower, but those are the rules for now. We found a smaller lift that never had a wait, but it closes early, even though it's right next to the main lift. ... Full Review
