Vail ski & snowboard holidays take you to a popular resort in Colorado, USA. Stretching over ten kilometres from east to west, it is the largest single ski mountain in the country. It is a pretty purpose built resort reminiscent of an alpine village. Located at an altitude of almost two and a half thousand metres and with the highest lift reaching almost three and a half thousand metres, Vail has a great snow record. It also boasts over three hundred days of sunshine each and every year. The resort has three base areas, Vail Village, Lionshead and Cascade. With over three hundred kilometres of pistes and three snow parks, Vail ski holidays cater for all. The Colorado lift pass covers neighbouring Beaver Creek, Arrowhead, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. With so much choice skiers need never take the same route twice. Vail is a great choice for those with non-skiers in their party as the resort has a range of alternative activities and the pedestrianised centre has many shops, cafes and restaurants where visitors can while away the hours.
