The sister resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek are two of Colorado’s finest. A great snow record and over 300 days of sun, all make this ski area a ‘must do’ destination. Beginners and intermediates will be impressed by the terrain Vail now has gondolas from both bases and can justifiedly claim a place among the world's premier ski resorts.
Vail is the USA's biggest ski resort, but also one of its best, particularly since a multi-billion dollar investment program has transformed both centers - Vail Village and Lion's Head. Vail celebrated 50 years in 2012 and now has gondolas from both bases and can justifiedly claim a place among the world's premier ski resorts. The quality of skiing, both on and off piste is now easily matched by the superb range of accommodation, restaurants and other facilities and Vail boasts a charismatic, bustling center which is rare in American ski resorts.
Beaver Creek is Vail's little sister just a few miles away. Ideally suited to families, this small village belies the big mountain but the friendly and safe environment cannot be beaten if your children are learning to ski. The ski school is superb and the ethos of Beaver Creek is all about making it easy.
