Average time to visit
The ski season in the United States is longer than that in Europe. Most resorts open sometime in November, with Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday in that month) being a common opening time, and stay open until mid to late April. The Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming have the highest peaks and due to the semi-arid climate, have abundant snowfall with some great powder. The exceptionally high altitude means December through to February can be extremely cold, with temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -12C, although the skiing conditions remain very good. Warmer temperatures in the Spring mean more variable skiing conditions and softer, forgiving snow.

After a day on the Vail slopes, head to the hotel's Tavern on the Square, a popular American grill, which has an enviable slope-side location, popular with locals or head for the private guest-only balcony terrace with great views of the skiers coming off the hill. For deeper relaxation, head to the rooftop pool with its stunning vistas of the mountains, relax in the hot tubs, or indulge yourself with a treatment in the fabulous spa.

It's all about location at the Arrabelle! The Arrabelle is located in the heart of Lionshead at the base of the Eagle Bahn gondola. It could not be any easier to get on the piste in the morning, with the ski concierge storing your equipment you are meters from the lift. A must after skiing is the roof top pool and hot tubs, watch the sunset over the mountains and Lionshead pistes. The ambiance of the hotel is very cosy and laid back, all rooms have their own fireplace and offer larger alternatives for families. For those who are looking for luxury accommodation and a ski in / ski out location then the Arrabelle is an excellent choice.
Kate Newman (Staff)
The Arrabelle has a premier location in Lionshead with one of the best sun terraces in town a great place to enjoy a drink in the sunshine after a day's skiing. With their ski valet on hand it really couldn't be any easier getting on and off the slopes each day. This hotel really is a great choice for families with a variety of room selections and excellent facilities. A visit to the Spa is a must and great for non skiers and skiers alike, with a very Grecian atmosphere you can easily forget the time.
