Internationally famous for its over 5,300 acres of ski terrain, Vail Mountain Resort is one of Colorado’s largest ski resorts. Skiers of all experience levels can enjoy a great day out on the slopes, and it’s just over a two-hour drive from Denver. Of course, with so much to offer, it can get busy here, so you’ll want to arrive early. There are lots of other things to do here too, including snowshoe wilderness tours and opportunities to improve your cross-country skills via the Nordic School. You’ll find many shops, restaurants, and hotels in Vail Village, which is known for its European feel, providing one of the best après-ski scenes around. Bart and Yeti’s, one of Vail’s oldest bars is a classic, complete with live music, while Garfinkels is a buzzing slopeside sports bar.
