Skiing Vail

With 31 chairlifts, 2 Gondolas, 195 trails, and over 5,300 acres of terrain located out our back door, the options for Skiing and Snowboarding can seem endless. With beginner, intermediate, and advanced run options, there is something for all levels of riding on the mountain. 

Vail Mountain can be accessed from Eagle Bahn Gondola - just a 3 minute walk from Monatneros.

Ski the the Legendary Back Bowls that have made Vail famous. Make your way across China & Sun Down Bowl and then up to Blue Sky Basin without ever skiing the same run twice. Vail is expansive, with hidden spots and wide open runs that make it the perfect mountain for any type of skier or snowboarder. Whether you're skiing the tree glades on Shangri-La or taking the kids through Chaos Canyon, everyone will find their stash.


New to skiing or interested in getting more acquainted with the mountain? Lessons with a qualified instructor are a perfect way to spend the day on Vail Mountain. Vail Resorts offers group and private lessons for children and adults. The cost of the lesson includes your lift ticket for the day!
