Just got back from a week in Vail with my dad and sister. For all of us it was our first time in Vail. Using a timeshare exchange we stayed in a two bedroom at the Eagle Point Resort. The rooms looked like they were recently renovated. Not a five star resort by any means more like a three star but it served our needs very well and they staff were so nice and friendly.
We skied three days at Vail one day at Arapahoe Basin and one day at Copper Mountain. I would say Vail was our favorite for sure but Copper had some nice, long black bump runs I really liked.
We thought the conditions were pretty darn good for early season. It snowed almost every day when we were there. Blue Sky Basin was really good for early season. There was plenty of terrain open from the beginner to the cliff jumper.
We ate at a ton of great restaurants including Flame Steakhouse, Atwater on Gore Creek and some other great places. All the food was top notch except for some pizza we got delivered which was mediocre at best and was way overpriced.
At night we would usually head out for dinner, drinks and shopping. Vail Village was really pretty all lite up. Driving to the airport today was a little bit of a challenge but we made it safe and sound.
Below are photos from our trip in no particular order. I am the one in the green Spyder jacket. Some might be better quality then others as they were taken on three different phones.
