With the EPIC pass we were able to ski both Vail and BC. This was very convenient to reload on line. Both ski resorts were great. Parking at Vail was $30 per day but only $10 per day BC (Elk Lot). The Vail parking structure...More
Word of warning. We were told it was a 2 hour and 15 minute drive from Denver. Instead we are looking at least a 4 hour drive (and there is no snow coming down or on the roads.). There is only one road in and...More
Every year a group of us go skiing in North America for 3-4 weeks in January/February.Since the introduction of the Epic pass, we always go to Vail for 10 days (which is the max. allowed), and then try one of the other resorts on the...More
The snow gods were with us on this trip. We skied for 5 days Jan 17-22 and received 2 1/2 days of fresh snow during those days. We like BC because the lift lines are very short; therefore you get a lot more skiing! Also...More
All booked for Saturday. We could not buy tickets. Please reserve early.
Get there early in the morning, so you have more time and make you you bought tickets in advance.
Great place for kids, much better than Vail resort.
I've been coming to Vail (from Australia) for over 20 years. It's an amazing experience each time. The Vail 'experience' has much to offer; from a charming village with plenty to see, to a vast skiing experience.
The skiing areas of Vail suit all levels...More
I have been skiing all over the world and for what this resort costs take the family to Europe or Canada. If your heart is set on the valley, head to Keystone. Beaver creek is great for green run resort skiing, but there are few...More
Apparently when you auto-renew your Epic Local Pass, you're really signing your life away. This piece of crap business will not let you cancel your pass for ANY reason. I can't afford my pass this year, tried to downgrade - apparently I was only able...More

Wait until you get to Colorado for the outer layers. You can probably buy your base layers online at better prices. If driving up from Denver, you may try the Outlets at Silverthorne (about 45 minutes from Vail on I70). They have Colombia, Under Armour and Nike outlet stores with discount prices. I've picked up some great buys on mid layers there. There is also a used ski and clothing store across the freeway between Dillon and Frisco. Generally, the closer to the lifts the higher the prices. It also depends on the time of year. There will be deals everywhere late in the season.
