Vail Mountain, Colorado
The most groomed terrain on the planet, four terrain parks, waist-deep powder, seven bowls, a whole area of adventure terrain and 34 lifts—all over three distinct sections of the mountain that total an enormous 5,289 acres. In fact, on an average day, there are only two skiers per acre, and on a busy day, less than four per acre! That’s a lot of fresh tracks. And even more precious elbow room. Combine that with an average of 1,500 acres of groomed runs, incredibly dry, fluffy powder and 300 days of sunshine and you’ve got the makings of the best ski day you’ve ever had.
If you’re looking for Front Side variety, there are 127 trails. Vail’s Front Side features not only beautifully manicured groomers but everything from smooth, gentle beginner slopes to moguls and glades. And then there are the four terrain parks for all levels of freestylers.
Nobody grooms more than Vail. In fact, Vail grooms the most terrain on the planet and more than most resorts have in their entirety. 29 snowcats see to it every day.
