Vail, Colorado

A little information about VAIL, COLORADO
With population 4,500 but 1.4 millions visitors. Vail is one of the most popular winter getaway in North America. Vail is located 100 miles west of Denver, it opened for business just under 42 years ago, but today it is the number one ski resort by visitors number and size. Elevation at 11,450 feet with over 5000 acres of terrain and 33 lifts, Vail is the largest single ski mountain in the world.

Just got back from my vacation, share some pictures with you guys, let me know what you think. Very nice place, I got so much fun but things very $$$ up in the mountain!

Ahhh Vail...the Disneyland of the ski industry. Some of those developments were quite successful at aping the chalets of the French Alps. Some weren't. Thanks for sharing though; it's been awhile since I've been.

It was my spring break last week, weather like 15-20 with lite snow but mostly sunny sky, couldn't ask for better weather. Vail have some best quality snow I must say, very dry soft powder, I build a chair and a table at the peak using it to eat my lunch
